During the weekend, at the World Cup in Lillehammer, Norway, the skier Jason Lamy Chappuis lived two hot days. The normal hill gold medalist in Vancouver, in 2010 ended in the 18th place after his 4th place in jumping. And on Sunday, the French did better by finishing in the second last place behind the Japanese Yoshito Watabe. This performance let him earned a silver medal. At the same time, Chapuis, who is always followed by many keens of online betting offers, won his first individual place on the podium of the season.
The gold medal came back to the German Fabian Rießle while the formidable Eric Frenzel settled for the third place with a bronze medal as a reward. On bookmakers online websites in France, his name is still a reference. And about the third event of the season (Gundersen), it was won by the Norwegian Mikko Kokslien. This is the 14th victory of his career, his second in 2014 after Chaux-Neuve in January. Fabian Rießle, for him, ended this time in the second place.

Fact of the day
During the Italian rowing team's celebration after winning the quadruple sculls at Seoul 1988, David Tizzano was thrown into the water and lost his Olympic gold medal on the muddy bottom of the Han River. A South Korean diver, working as a security guard at the regatta course, retrieved it after a 50-minute search. Eight years later, in Atlanta, Tizzano won a second gold medal in the double scull.Featured Job

2016 Olympic Gold Medal Totals
The 2016 Summer Olympics are only a few days away and, just in time for the start of the Summer Games, Vegas-based sportsbook Westgate released gold medal totals for many of the participating countries.
In the 2012 Summer Olympics, the United States led all countries with 46 gold medals and this year they open as the favorites to repeat. The US is laden with potential gold medalists, including front-runners in men’s/women’s basketball, women’s tennis, women’s water polo, and women’s soccer. After the United States, there is a bit of a drop-off. China has the second-highest total for gold medals (34.5) and then Great Britain (18.5).
One important takeaway from this prop bet is that the oddsmakers have not set a total for Russia. Several athletes from Russia are facing bans from the Olympics after drug tests revealed that they were doping. Members from the Russian weightlifting, swimming, and track and field team have already been barred from the Summer Games.
The table below displays the gold medal totals from Westgate.
