Is It Possible to Predict Medal Winners?

The 2012 Olympics are just around the corner and there are high expectations for many countries and individuals who will be competing in London, but is it possible to predict which countries will walk away with the most medals?  The USA Today seems to think so as they released a “Medal Tracker” which predicts countries rank and the number of gold, silver, and bronze medals they will receive.  The top five are as follows: China, United States, Russian, Great Britain and Germany.  How do they calculate these predictions?  According to the USA Today an algorithm is used that takes into account recent event results to predict how each country will land.  This Olympics will feature athletes such as Michael Phelps, Kobe Bryant and the lightning fast Usain Bolt.  The summer events will kick off on July 27 and run through August 12.
