Gold: Reese Hoffa, USA
Silver: Ryan Whiting, USA
Bronze: David Storl, Germany
Analysis: Hoffa is just a beast when he's throwing the shot. He and Whiting are showing their full potentials right before the Olympics, and I think it will carry over into the competition. Storl could also sneak in there for the gold, but I think the Americans are most likely going to take the top two spots.
Gold: Vitezslav Vesely, Czech Republic
Silver: Andreas Thorkildsen, Norway
Bronze: Oleksandr Pyatnytsya, Ukraine
Analysis: Vesely has the top throw of anyone in the world this year by more than six feet, and has bested the next highest throw of 283', 9'' four other times this year. That alone makes me think he'll win the gold medal. If Thorkildsen wins, however, it will be his third Olympic gold in a row.
Gold: Robert Harting, Germany
Silver: Virgilijus Alekna, Lithuania
Bronze: Gerd Kanter, Estonia
Analysis: Harting and Alenka are the only two throws to get the disc over 230 feet this year. The next closest was 226 feet. This is a two-man competition for the gold medal and I think Harting will come out on top.
Gold: Krisztian Pars, Hungary
Silver: Aleksey Zagorniy, Russia
Bronze: Szymon Ziolkowski, Poland
Analysis: Consistency has been the name of the game for Pars this year, and he's consistently remained at or near the top in every competition. The Olympics will be no different as I think he'll throw for more than 270 feet en route to the gold.
