London 2012: The Medal Tally Discussion Thread

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by redshift, Jul 29, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. So, now that I am comfortable settled, sipping a beer, watching (sort of) the London shebangs from across the pond, how many medals are you predicting for team GB?

    As it currently stands after the first full day, you lot are tied in 15th position with Colombia, Cuba, Poland, Romania and Taiwan.

    It's only the start so plenty more to go. You guys did pretty decent last time, came in 4th overall with 19 golds. :1:

    Italy had a pretty good day today, was in the 2nd place most of the time. U.S. just took it back.
     
  2. Not expecting us to get anything near what we did in 2010, but then these are the summer games.
     
  3. CAN WE PLEASE have an Olympic THREAD???? AND put everything Olympic under it?
     
  4. You could just go and kill yourself, then you would be relieved of it all (and us of you)!

  5. North Korea and Kazakstan(sp) are ahead of us at the moment. It'll be embarrassing if we get beaten by Dear Leader and Borat.
     
  6. I think most people consider the summer games to be the "real / proper" version of olympics. :p
     
  7. Well, our best performance was when we were hosts back in 1908, finishing first of twenty two nations with 146 medals and we did OK until 1924. The worst performance was at Atlanta in 1996, fifteen medals and placed 36th out of 197. The odds are on us finishing between eighth and thirteenth.
