"Aussies aim for 50 medals but come up far short"
This is the prediction we are getting over here from Sports Illustrated. They are expecting Australia to win 40 medals (16 gold) and finish 6th. They are projecting the USA to retain the overall crown (99 medals, 42 gold) with China once again close behind and GB 4th but adding the most medals by far to its Beijing tally. James Magnussen, Stephanie Rice, sailors, track cyclists and the Kookaburras are expected to do well. They note the Aust women's basketball team has last 3 straight Olympic finals to the US.
