The Olympics are about pageantry, national pride, lifelong dreams and competitive ideals. And they're about medals.
That's where this slideshow comes in: medals. We will explore who's slated to win and who actually wins, on Day 6 of medal competition at the London Games, August 2.
Bleacher Report's predictions for today's medal winners are based on research into the picks from Sports Illustrated and USA Today, event previews at SI.com and Yahoo!, information from sport-specific websites and the expertise of Bleacher Report's Olympic writers.
Throughout the day, this slideshow will update with the actual winners in each event.
