My mother country, Japan, usually performs really well at the Winter Olympics. Although Japan only won eight medals during the last Winter Games, Japanese athletes are very talented, and are expected to do a lot better this year.
Given the results from last years, I believe that Japan has good chances in ice skating and ski jumping. Ice skating is a big thing in Japan, as more than ten percent of Japanese citizens watch ice skating games on TV, including myself.
I expect Japan to get more medals than the last winter games. However, what I value the most is that countries around the world show respect to each other, and compete with integrity and cooperation before fighting for the numbers of medals.
