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.

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?"
banned#12
How many medals will we win from athletes born and raised in GB?
#13
OP do you know what the Olympics are about ?

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.

none.

"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.

As a guy who has worked in Scotland & in England you get to see both sides of the "Myths" & from what I seen,both the Scottish & English have stubborn people,but I also noticed that in England (mostly London) that people are very selfish & don't help each other out like they do in Scotland.An example is when you get to go on the train or bus,no one helps you with your luggage or even holds a door open for you.I also noticed that when in England,the English don't tip very well in the catering side of things.
In Scotland most people will hold a door open for you & even offer to help you with your luggage when entering a train.
Maybe it's just a London thing,but I never liked the place & could not get out of the place quick enough.
I would like to think Liverpool,Manchester etc etc are not like this.

I got the tone perfect in both Lugs,but was just adding to the statement for those who do believe Scots are all tight & miserable,as that's just my wife oO

Hardly pessimistic.
Its more optomistic, in that i wish that we dissolve this failed Union.

London Olympics brings nearly zero benefit to Scotland, and harms Scottish Tourism this year.
Considering we have to pay for it, while it harms our economy this year, yup Scots are loving it lol.
Considering its what £10+Billion on the Olympics, then its going to be £4+Billion on the Sewers next, why the English arent as fed up of siphoning money to artificially inflate London as we are totally escapes me.

The money thats been siphoned off from sport, doesnt hold out much hope of medals though tbh.

Pragmatic.

Theres no point spending £Billions on a party for London, when it adversely hits other services.
Spending money on a big sports showcase, while depleting sports funding is brainless.
Simply shows they dont give a toss about sport at all, its an excuse to pour funding into London leaving a legacy like the Millenium Dome was. Once the Olympics out the road, another £4Bill gets poured into London for the sewerage works, to keep up the building works, investment, and jobs into the heaviest publically invested area of the UK.
Us Scots get moaned at about "oh that bad Barnet Formula" ignoring that London gets more money per head than anywhere else, while also having a larger population, meaning a larger amount of cash poured in. Part of the reason most Scots laugh at, then ignore any hypocritical Londoner who mentions it.

The billions spent on the Olympics could have refurbed/built sports halls throughout the country and a lot more.
Whole thing was an idiotic idea.
