As the Olympics returned for the winter edition in Beijing, athletes are currently trading swim caps, skateboards, and spikes for ski goggles, snowboards, and skates. Below, we predict the winner for some of the most important games in the Winter Olympics 2022.
Before we begin, remember one thing: the best players from the NHL will not participate in the Winter Olympics 2022, which means the top European players will be dominating the tournament, immediately putting Russia (the winners of the 2018 gold medal) in a strong position.
Many fans tune in to the Winter Olympics 2022 just for the skiing events. Why? Because people around the world love to bet on skiing as it’s an exciting sport. There are different types of skiing events. The Norwegian team is the leading contender to win the team sprint gold. Fanny Smith and Sandra Naeslund will compete for the gold medal in the Women’s Freestyle. Plus, Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo is expected to win the men’s sprint F final in cross-country skiing.
Mikaela Shiffrin won a gold medal in alpine skiing in 2014 and 2018 and is still competing at the top, which is why she’s the leading contender on the slopes. Michelle Gisin, Lara Gut-Behrami, and Petra Vlhova are also expected to challenge podium places in the women’s games.
The overall men’s world cup champion is Alexis Pinturault of France, and he’ll be looking to improve on his two silver and bronze medals at the previous Winter Olympics.
The predictions for ice hockey will be interesting because the National Ice Hockey League was planning to allow players to travel to Beijing for the event. However, this is no longer the case, and no player from the NHL will be present at the 2022 Winter Olympics. This means many top nations, including Canada and the US, will attend the event without some of the big names. In the Winter Olympics 2022, Canada and the US remain the favorites to win gold medals for the women’s ice hockey event, with Finland and Russia locking horns for bronze.
