How successful will Canada be in Beijing?
Tue, August 7, 2007

There's still a year to go before the 2008 Summer Olympics open in Beijing, but the guessing games have already begun for Team Canada.

Who's going? How many medals can we win?

Along with the inevitable training and team selection, the fact that the Olympics are in Beijing means there is an extra layer of issues for Canadians to deal with, such as travel and time zones, food, culture, along with stifling heat and humidity.

One year ... and counting

Same as always. It's hard to compete against the giants like the US and China, Germany to a lesser extent.

Athens was a debacle, so we will be better than the 12 medals we won there. I think it is reasonable to believe we will win double that in Beijing. We'll be better at rowing, swimming, and diving. I do agree somewhat with Chris when he says we should focus on our winter olympians, though. The summer games are an uphill battle for a country with basically five warm months.

We can expect at least 1 gold from John Hastings

It doesn't really matter how successful or unsuccessful we are at the summer olympics. We should marshall our limited resources into dominating the winter olympics
