American Statistics Company Predicts Korea to Rank 10th with 23 Total Medals at Paris Olympics

It is predicted that Korea will rank 10th in terms of total number of medals at the Paris Summer Olympics to be held in July.

According to a report released on the 26th by Gracenote,

a data analysis company under Nielsen in the United States, six months before the opening of the Olympics,

Korea was predicted to win 23 medals, including 7 gold medals, 6 silver medals, and 10 bronze medals.

Compared to Gracenote’s prediction in July of last year, the number of gold and silver medals decreased by one,

and the number of bronze medals decreased by four, and the rankings remained the same. 안전놀이터

Gracenote said, “The 2020 Tokyo Olympics was a disappointing event for Korea.”

“Korea won 20 medals at the Tokyo Games, including 6 gold medals, 4 silver medals, and 10 bronze medals,

breaking both the number of gold medals and the total number of medals since 1984.”

“It was the lowest since the Angeles Games,” he commented.

He then predicted, “The outlook for the Paris Olympics is better than that of Tokyo,

but it will not be able to replicate the achievements that Korea achieved from the 2004 Athens Games to the 2012 London Games.”

Korea won 9 gold medals at the Athens Olympics and 13 gold medals each at the 2008 Beijing and London Olympics.

After peaking in London, he went downhill and only won 9 gold medals at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

Gracenote predicted that the United States would take first place by winning 129 medals,

including 37 gold medals, beating China (85 medals total, including 35 gold medals).

In addition, it is predicted that Great Britain will come in third place in terms of total number of medals with 64, and that France, the host country,

will come in third place in terms of number of gold medals with 26.

The Associated Press reported that Gracenote also had difficulty predicting because only a portion of athletes from Russia, which invaded Ukraine two years ago.

Belarus, a supporter of the invasion, were scheduled to participate in the Paris Olympics in accordance with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) policy.

The IOC restricted Russian and Belarusian athletes’ eligibility to participate in the Paris Olympics to those not related to the military or the war in Ukraine,

and restricted them to competing on the Olympic stage as members of neutral organizations that cannot use the national flag or national anthem.

Since most of the players on the Russian and Belarusian national teams belong to teams linked to their countries’ military,

the number of athletes from these two countries participating in the Paris Olympics will be greatly reduced compared to other competitions.
