Fantasy Olympic Games

Vince Carter Sport GIF by Team USAdavid chokachi swimming GIFmen clip GIF200.gif

 

The Olympics starts on 23rd July and I'm organising a simple fantasy game. To participate you have to pick your own multi-national team made from a selection of the participating nations. You then score points simply based on what medals your nations win, 4 for gold, 2 for silver and 1 for bronze. The final result comes from the final medals table, but I will do regular updates of the scores as the games progress.

 

  • Pick exactly 5 nations
  • Each nation has been assigned a fantasy value and your team total value can not exceed 100 M$
    • see next post
  • The values have been worked out in direct proportion to the total medals won at the last 5 summer games.
  • I'm not listing every single nation here, any not listed worked out at less than 1 M$ but if you want another you can have it valued at 1 M$
    • You may notice Russia are not listed as they have been banned from team sport. Some Russian athletes may be competing under a neutral flag in individual events, but it was simplest just to leave Russia out. So there is no Russia in this fantasy game
  • No duplicate fantasy teams are allowed so if you think you have a winner enter it before someone else does
    • your team must differ by at least one nation to all other teams
  • There are no substitutions, once you have entered your team that is it
  • Just post your teams here
    • I'll try to keep a list of entries so you can check someone else has not picked it already
  • All teams to be submitted by 22:00 UK time on 23rd July please (first medals awarded on the 24th).

Hasnt it already started? Pretty sure Australia v Japan softball was today (or yesterday for you guys). I might be confused though.

Edit: just googled, and apparently there are competitions before the opening ceremony. Interesting...

yes, some team sports have a started before the official opening ceremony, I guess they can't fit all fixtures  into the 3 weeks of the official games.

Scores updated, and copied into 2nd post (copy & paste seems more reliable using Chrome)

And after a good couple of days for the hosts and GB I have taken the lead.

 

I will double check everything before the final scores. But if someone thinks their score is wrong please say so and I'll check ASAP.

@Con not sure if you have noticed, but North Korea are not taking part and they are in your team. I obviously did not know that when I started this competition, only noticed today doing a quick check of scores and thinking it was a bit odd they had no medals yet.

So I think to be fair you should be allowed to replace them with one of the others at the same value. So I'll make a random selction from Turkey, Croatia, Slovakia, South Africa, Thailand or Uzebkistan.
