After long months during which the Olympic Games in Beijing provoked discussions about political questions and human rights, the attention shifts towards the sports and the athletes. The XXIXth Summer Olympic Games will begin in Beijing on 08/08/2008 at 08:08:08 local time and the Czech Republic sends to China at least 120 athletes.
How many medals will they win? The question is discussed not only over a beer in a pub but became a target of serious research. According to a model employed by David Marek, chief economist of Patria Finance, which includes not only the number of medals won in the past but also the Czech population and GDP estimates, the Czech athletes should bring home nine medals.
What is your estimate? How will the Czech Republic score at the Olympic Games in Beijing? And how many medals will the Czech sportsmen win?
