Who do you predict to be our 2012 Men’s Olympic Team Champions? China have 2 returning Olympians from the Beijing team, Japan have one and United States also have one. I predict Japan to do well, with both the United States and China hot on their heels. Great Britain will do well.  Leave a comment below with your thoughts.

  2. I want the U.S. to win gold! But I think it’s going to be Japan gold, U.S. silver, Great Britain bronze. 🙂 I definitely want to see GB on the podium somewhere. It would be so exciting for the home crowd!
