 MultiVu - PricewaterhouseCoopers Predicts Fewer Medals for U.S. Olympic Team in Athens Than in Sydney   (Site not responding. Last check: )
According to PricewaterhouseCoopers' analysis, the former Soviet bloc countries are expected to outperform at the 2004 Athens Games - so too, is the host nation.
For other countries, the model estimates tend to be more similar to performance at Sydney, but may prove useful as a standard against which to calibrate how well a country really does at the Athens Olympics in the light of its size, income levels, political history and past performance.
Overall, the PricewaterhouseCoopers model is able to explain nearly 90% of the variation in medal shares across countries in recent Olympic Games, although this still leaves some room for other factors, such as outstanding individual athletic performances, to play a part as well.
