    I can guarantee 100% that England will not win any medals at the olympics 2012

    Looking at the Commonwealth Games, we see that England win more medals than all of the other Home nations. I see no reason for this to change at the Olympic Games. In any case, it's entirely irrelevant.

    were not much good at anything else

    Think you will find that the home nations do not compete against each other, but as GB will have more English athletes than the other home nations then yes they will probably win more ,but at the end of the day i still guarantee that England will not win any.

    The population of England is over 50 million. The population of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland COMBINED comes to around 10 million, therefore England should (using an admittedly simplistic view) win around 5 times the amount of medals that the other home nations combined should. This is without factoring in the level of investment England can provide for its entrants, which the other home nations simply cannot count on.

    So I'd say about tree fiddy?

    are you trying to say the bigger the population the more gold medals?

    surely with that way of thinking the olympics and any other competition is pointless you may just as well give all the gold medals to the country with the largest population

    im afraid thats not how sport works as for the investment brb just counting up the amount of camels invested in kenya

    Is your question, "How many gold medals will English athletes win in the Olympics?".

    The way you've asked the question is like saying, "How many goals will Manchester United score in Euro 2012?"
    master_chief
    How many medals will we win from athletes born and raised in GB?
    WheresMeNuts

    BTW:Scotland will get 6-7 golds

    This is it, Northern Ireland has about a million people and have a good chance at a gold in the boxing :p

    Team GB will win gold medals in darts, tiddlywinks, caber tossing, moaning, queueing and chavving.

    "England" wont win any, as "England" dont compete.
    As part of team GB, English competitors might get some Gold's.

    Might be the last year of sending a Team GB , as by 2016 the UK might be dust.
    Need to check when the Scots election dates may fall as thats likely to be Independence day in 2016.

    As part of Team GB, i really couldnt tell how many will be won.
    Its the most over-hyped Olympics i remember, just for the fact it's in London.
    I've yet to meet a fellow Scot, up here who really cares about it, without them mentioning the siphoning off of money to pay for it.
    Siphoning money used to actually promote sport, to pay for a big "look how much we still matter" show for the UK in London.
    A needless money drain, trying to follow up from China last time, so when comparisons are inevitably made it'l just be an embarassment.

    Doing your best to dispel the 'myth' that the Scottish are pessimistic and miserable i see. ;)
