USA will take 16 golds in swimming adding the coming 2golds from men and women's 4X100m medley relay. That's 4 golds more than the number in Beijing. Also I think tehy'll have 2 more golds from Tennis than 4yrs ago.
The USA team didn't do well in Athletics in Beijing and this time they shall get at least more golds in Athletics,maybe even at worst. Also they gonna get more golds in gymnastics. All in all,42 golds for team USA shall be no problem.
When it comes to our team, the golds we lost/going to lose(comparing the Beijing Olympics) as follows:
Weight lifting -3
adding swimming +4
That's 51-13+4=42 golds
So I assume we get 42 golds maximum.
I'm buying out most of my bet considering it's a big play. If china wins,I'm in slight profit,yet it's not likely to happen I think.
Chinese team is letting me down big time. What a bunch of tools!Assholes!
