Canada Projected to Win 4 Gold Medals at Tokyo Olympic Games

A global data company is projecting that Canada will walk away from the Tokyo Olympic games with 21 medals.

In a virtual medal table, Gracenote projects that Canada will win four gold, eight silver and nine bronze medals, coming in 15th place.

Gracenote is a data and technology company that provides sports, music and video metadata to entertainment services and companies.

The 2020 Tokyo Olympics hosted their opening ceremony on Friday, after being delayed by COVID-19 last year.

Own The Podium executive director Anne Merklinger told CTV News Channel that Canadians will have a lot to celebrate at this year’s Olympics.

“We have a very strong team in Tokyo and there are so many moments, I know that the athletes and coaches will be able to provide Canadians a reason to celebrate.”

She hopes that this year’s games will help bring people together to heal, even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Help people come together, help countries come together to heal and rebuild post-COVID,” she said. “It will definitely inspire Canadians all over our great country, so I’m really excited about the opportunity that lies ahead over the next 16 days.”

Gracenote predicts that the United States, Russian Olympic Committee and China will be the top three winners at the Olympic Games this year. If these predictions are correct, it will be the seventh consecutive Summer Games win for the U.S.

Their Virtual Olympic Medal Table is forecasted using data from previous Olympic Games, World Championships and World Cups to predict which countries are most likely to win each medal.

At the 2016 Rio Olympics, Canada went home with 22 trips to the podium ranking in 20th place. In 1964, when the Summer Games were last held in Tokyo, Canada won four medals: one gold, two silver and one bronze.
