Olympic medal table first latest odds out! The United States top favorite, the battle between China and the United States there are big variables
On July 19, the U.S. was most favored to rank first in the medal table at the Tokyo Olympics, according to a report in the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph. But in my opinion, there are huge variables in the race between the U.S. and China.
The latest odds for first place in the medal standings show that the United States is the most favored, with odds of 9 to 1, and will almost certainly secure first place in the Tokyo Olympic medal standings. China is the second favorite with odds of 1 to 6, while the Russian Olympic Committee delegation ranks third at 1 to 20.
Great Britain is 1 for 33, ranking fourth, host Japan is 1 for 66, ranking fifth, Germany is sixth, followed by the Netherlands.
As the dominant force in the world of sports, the United States has ranked first in the medal table in 17 of the 27 Olympic Games they have participated in, with 1127 gold medals, 907 silver medals and 793 bronze medals so far, bringing the total number of medals to 2827.
However, there is an important variable in this Tokyo Olympics is the epidemic. This will test the level of prevention of the epidemic of each team, at present, the United States has sounded the alarm, before the opening of the Olympic Games, there have been a number of people confirmed, even without the Olympic Games, such as the talented American tennis girl Gough.
It is believed that this will be a big change in the race between China and the United States for the first place in the medal table. There is no doubt about the level of prevention of the Chinese team, and with the assurance that no one is infected, can China blow past the United States and rank first? We'll see.
