Supercomputer predicts Team GB’s medal tally for Paris 2024 Olympics – but where will the Brits finish in overall table? | The Sun

THE Paris Olympic Games are just one year away as Team GB prepare to go for medals in the French capital.

Great Britain have enjoyed some hugely successful Games since the turn of the century.

They more than doubled their medal tally from Sydney 2000 to London 2012, going from 28 to 65 – including 29 golds.

That number increased to 67 in Rio seven years ago, before they secured 64 in Tokyo.

But how many medals will they pick up in France in 12 months' time?

A supercomputer carried out by a Gracenote forecast has estimated Team GB's success at the upcoming Olympics.

And it is predicted they will secure 62 medals in Paris – representing a slight dip from Japan.

This will see them secure fourth in the medal table – behind the USA [128], China [68] and hosts France [63].

Among those projected to become Olympic champions are 15-year-old skateboarder Sky Brown, 800-metre runner Keely Hodgkinson, BMX rider Bethany Shriever, gymnasts Jessica Gadirova and Bryony Page, and taekwondo star Bradly Sinden.

Other medalists include Jake Wightman, Britain's 1500m world champion, who is predicted to secure bronze – with sprinter Dina Asher-Smith enjoying the same result.

Another 1500m runner, Laura Muir, is projected a silver medal.

But European 200m champion Zharnel Hughes is not included among the medallists.

Adam Peaty and Tom Dean are also predicted to clinch silvers in the pool – two of nine swimming medals.

Data analysts Gracenot Nielsen said: "Britain is expected to come close to sustaining its performance in Tokyo.

"Gracenote's virtual media table forecasts a drop of just two medals to 62. Gold medals could be significantly down, though, as the British team are on just 15 golds in this initial prognosis.

"British success over the past three Olympic Games has been built on having medal winners in at least 20 sports and the initial virtual media table forecast suggests that this is set to continue."

Russian and Belarusian athletes were not included in the forecast due to uncertainty regarding their participation in the Games.

Other nations in the top 10 behind Team GB include Japan, Italy, Australia, Netherlands, Germany and South Korea.
