THE HAGUE, August 14. /TASS/. According to forecasts of Infostrada Sports, a respectable international sports analytics resource, Russia will finish the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in the third place of the overall medals standings after the United States and China, in the first and second places respectively.
The Dutch-based agency claimed in its so-called ‘Virtual Medal Table,’ which was posted a year ahead of the Summer Olympics in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro, that the Russian athletes were likely to finish the Games next year with a total of 75 medals (22 gold, 24 silver and 29 bronze).
The agency predicts that the United States would travel home from Brazil with a total load of 99 medals (46 gold, 20 silver and 33 bronze), while their closest contenders China would pack 72 medals (31-27-14).
According to the official website of Infostrada, "The Virtual Medal Table predicts the most likely gold, silver and bronze medal winners as if the Games were being held today. It provides a unique insight into the current form of athletes and the countries they represent."
Infostrada Sports says on its official website that it offers unique data, media, analytic and event services to the sports industry. The agency says it manages "the world’s largest sports database, covering over 250 sports worldwide, historical and live."
