The Netherlands will win twenty medals at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games in Beijing, one more than in 2018 in Pyeongchang. This is the prediction of the data agency Gracenote, a year before the start of the Games in Beijing. With this harvest, the Netherlands will come fifth in the medal table. Skaters and short trackers will handle the slices as usual, Gracenote expects.
Norway, just like in Pyongchang, will lead the medal level at the end of the Games with a record number of 41 medals, two more than in 2018. The Norwegians generally excel in cross-country skiing and biathlon.
Russia is the striking number two in medal level expected with 34 medals, twice as many as in 2018. Gracenote assumes that the Russians who win medals will indeed participate. Russia as a nation has been suspended due to the vast doping scandal, but athletes who are clearly doping-free are allowed to compete under the neutral Olympic flag.
According to Gracenot’s forecast, Germany and the United States rank with 31 and 24 respectively, taking third and fourth places on the medal list. China will not perform better as a host country than in 2018 in Pyenongchang. Gracenote expects eight medals in Beijing 2022.
