Almost definitely the United States or China will win the most medals (the USA will probably have the slight edge).
The usa will win another 150 medals
By wining the highest number of Gold medals...
Well, many countries try to win medals as to give reputation and attraction to the country. But also the country will be proud
Countries don't compete in the Olympics, people do. To "win" the Olympics, if it is such a thing, would be to be the country with the most and highest medals. And to be the country with the most and highest medals, you need to be the country with the most winning athletes. To get good athletes in as many sports as possible, a country need to make it easy for promising athletes to train, and to train well. Provide coaches, arenas, training camps, doctors, dieticians, sports equipment and so on.
A large number of countries did not win any medals. The related link lists the 85 nations that did win Olympic Medals
Number of medals won at the Beijing Olympics: 41 medals
In the 2004 Summer Olympics, Canada won a total of 12 medals:3 Gold Medals6 Silver Medals3 Bronze MedalsThey were 21st overall in the total number of medals awarded per country.
The USA was expected to win the most medals and did
At the 2008 Olympics, that was not the case.
yes, china won the highest no of gold medals (51) in 2008 Olympics
To date, Australia gained its largest win of Gold medals at the 2004 Athens Olympics, when it won 17 Gold. However, Australia's highest overall medal tally was at Sydney in 2000, when the country won a total of 58 medals, with 16 Gold, 25 Silver and 17 Bronze.
Canada won 14 gold medals - a new record for the number of gold medals ever won by a single country at any Winter Olympics!
The country Ireland has won ten medals in 2012
i think its 15-20 gold medals or 10-15 ;)
Australia had it's highest gold medal tally, 17, at the 2004 Summer Games in Athens. Swimmers Jodie Henry and Petria Thomas won the most gold medals for the 2004 team with 3 each.
London is not a specific NOC (National Olympics Committee) - the number of medals won in the Olympics is counted by individual country. Great Britain won a total of 19 gold medals at the Olympics.
China received the most gold medals at the 2008 Olympics, but not the most total medals. When a country hosts the Olympics, they have a chance to receive more medals (especially gold) as they qualify for more competitions. This helped China beat the US in the largest number of gold medals, but the US still pulled out with the most total medals. I only say this because the US almost always receives the most gold medals of any country at the Olympics. It also depends on if you decide who "wins" the Olympics by the number of total medals or the number of gold only.
Canada so far, and they got uhm...heeeaps of medals xD
So far the US won gold medals in certain events during the 2012 Olympics, but as to which country will win the most medals overall, that cannot be determined as of now.
There are 97 events in which a country can win a gold medal in the 2014 Winter Olympics. It is possible, though highly unlikely, for one country to win them all.
Through the 2008 Games, that would be gymnast Larissa Latynina of the former Soviet Union who won 18 medals (9 gold, 5 silver, 4 bronze) in Olympic competition in 1956, 1960, and 1964.
She did not win any medals
