Based on threads in this sub-forum.

Which of these 3 nations will win the most medals?

As long as we do better than Sydney 2000, where we were terrible, NZ should win more than the other two here.

Looks like we have some excellent medal chances.

We are going to man-shame India and Ireland. I would expect a minimum of three golds and 5 minor medals.

Olympics are clearly biased against the Sub Continent teams.

Not only should there by a BCCI representative on the IOC, but Kabbadi should be an olympic sport.

I miss the coverage of Kabbadi that I used to get when I lived in the UK. If handball is an olympic sport (and it clearly shouldn't be) then Kabbadi should be in there. WHO'S WITH ME????

Hockey should go out before handball.
Disagree. The level of danger is clearly higher in hockey, hence this is a proper sport. Handball is just poor. I sat through the length of Germany vs. Sweden (yesterday?) and I was wholly underwhelmed. Hockey has been good, despite the poor showing by the Black Sticks.

I feel its time to spread the Kabbadi love, to be honest.

Well, you did watch two of the worst women's teams in the event.

Handball has more players in more active countries. Germany are top of the world in both sports (on the men's side), yet handball is considerably more popular both among players and spectators. Suggests to me that the level in handball is higher. (Whether you prefer someone tossing a ball or someone flicking a stick is really a matter of personal opinion though.)

No doubt an intriguing game. Beats me how they know players aren't breathing through their nose though.

Well, its tough to breathe through your nose whilst saying "Kabbadikabbadikabbadikabbadi" etc.

Tough game. The sort of game that gets banned by the anti-competitive brigade these days.

Only one we could pick up now is in the K1 500 kayaking on Sunday. No other medal chances left.
