2014 Winter Olympic curling medal predictions

See also

On Thursday according to the Canadian Press, the 2014 Continental Cup of Curling got under way from the unlikely location of Las Vegas, Nevada.

In opening round action, Eve Muirhead of Great Britain trounced Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg 12-2. However even though Jones was thumped on Thursday, her team should still be a strong contender for an Olympic gold medal. All one needs to see is who is in first place on the World Curling Tour's Order of Merit to realize that Jones has had a fine curling season. Jones has 377.8 points to Muirhead's 343.665.

Along with her win at the 2013 Tim Horton's Roar of the Rings at the Canadian Olympic Curling Trials in Winnipeg, the Jones team has won two majors on the 2014 World Curling Tour--the Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Women's Classic from October 25-28 in Winnipeg where she beat Jill Thurston of Winnipeg 7-0 in the final and the Colonial Square Ladies' Classic from November 15-18 in Saskatoon where she beat Michele Jaggi of Switzerland 7-3 in the final.

On the men's side, Sweden's Niklas Edin will have momentum against Canada's Brad Jacobs where he dominated him in a 8-6 triumph in the gold medal game of the 2013 World Men's Curling Championship. The score was a lot more uneven than the final result as Edin was in complete control throughout the entire contest in Victoria.

Here are my medal predictions for curling:




Bronze--Great Britain



Silver--Great Britain


The gold medal game for men will take place February 21 and the gold medal game for women will take place February 20.
