By   - 30/01/2020

To mark the recent six-month from the 2020 Olympic date, Gracenote Sports has released its Virtual Medal Table for the 2020 Olympics, predicting the final medal count for every sport being contested in Tokyo. Not only does Gracenote Sports provide the total medal count prediction for the Olympic Games, but it also predicts who will win every single medal in every sport during the Games. In wrestling, Gracenote Sports predicted that India would win three Olympic medals, including gold medal from Bajrang Punia at 68 kg men’s freestyle.

Based on this prediction, the Indian haul would include two bronze medals as well including Bajrang’s gold. The Nielsen company has predicted that Deepak Punia will win bronze medal at 86 kg men’s freestyle and Vinesh Phogat in 53kg women freestyle. 2019 World champion Park Yong Mi has been predicted to win gold and Mayu Mukaida of Japan as silver contender in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Overall, the Gracenote Virtual Medal Table has Russia winning the most wrestling medals with 9 (5 gold-2 silver-2 bronze). The USA (2-3-3) and host Japan (1-4-3) are next with eight medals. Turkey (1-2-3) is next in the predicted wrestling medal count with six medals, followed by Ukraine (1-1-2) with four medals. Four nations are predicted to get three medals, Hungary (1-1-1), India (1-0-2), Korea (0-1-2), Sweden (0-0-3). Seven countries are predicted to finish with two wrestling medals: Azerbaijan (1-0-1), China (1-0-1), Georgia (1-0-1), Cuba (0-2-0), Kazakhstan (0-0-2), Germany (0-0-2) and Serbia (0-0-2). In total, 27 different nations are expected to win a wrestling medal, according to Gracenote.

It is interesting that while Gracenote predicts Japan to win five medals in women’s freestyle, it predicts no women’s freestyle gold medals for Japan, with four silvers and a bronze in women’s freestyle. In 2016 at the Rio Olympics, Japan also won five Olympic women’s freestyle medals, but four of them were gold medals.

When it comes to overall medals, the United States is predicted to head the medal list with 117 medals, including 47 gold, 36 silver and 34 bronze. Rounding out the top 10 in the Gracenote predictions are China with 87 (43-21-23), Russia with 66 (25-19-22), Japan with 65 (30-24-11), Australia with 44 (17-16-11), Great Britain with 42 (13-12-17), the Netherlands with 41 (16-9-16), France with 37 (6-16-15) and Germany with 35 (9-12-14).
