There is a phenomenon at the Olympics where by the host country tends to outperform it's recent performances
Japan is hosting the Olympics in 2021. Will they place significantly higher in the medal table than they have in recent years. Their last 5 placings were:
2000: 15th 2004: 5th 2008: 8th 2012: 11th 2016: 6th
Will they come in the Top 4 again?
Will Japan place in the Top 4 at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics
This question will resolve positively if Japan place in the top 4 (ties resolve positively) at the Olympics being held in 2021. It will resolve ambiguously if the Olympics do not take place in 2021.
The medal table is calculated by taking the total number of medals won by each participating country and ordering by:
- Number of Gold Medals
- (Where 1 is tied) Number of Silver Medals
- (Where 2 is tied) Number of Bronze Medals
