Medal Table Summer Olympics Sochi 2014.

Great Britain does not have the best Winter Games record, but we may certainly look forward to Sochi 2014, as Lizzy Yarnold (Skeleton), Jenny Jones (Slopestyle Snowboard) and both Curling Teams are among the favourites in their respective sports. With so few chances, a (gold) medal would be even more special to us.

Ole Einar Bjørndalen from Norway has a whole different target than winning 'only' one medal. He may become the best Olympic athlete ever if he wins two medals in Sochi. Still he is trailing fellow compatriot Bjørn Dæhlie by two medals. The latter has been the record holder since Nagano 1998 with twelve medals of which eight are made of gold.

It will be difficult for Bjørndalen to surpass Dæhlie, as it already should have happened four years ago in Vancouver. The now fourty-year old Norwegian however qualified for Sochi 2014 albeit not in great form. He definitely has chances in the Teams and to a lesser extent individually.
