Given that Canada’s Paula Findlay has been the only real consistent figure on the podium over the last season and a half, predicting the medalists for the women at the 2012 London Olympic triathlon is an extremely difficult task. Will the Emmas of Australia continue the good form they demonstrated in Hamburg and find their way back on top? Will an American woman follow in the footsteps of Susan Williams and pull out a medal? Or will an unknown face pull off an upset? Only time will tell. Despite the difficulties in predicting the 2012 medalists, we’ve given it our best shot.
