European Championships Contest

The European Athletics Championships takes place in Berlin between 7 August and 12 August where there will be 47 gold medals up for grabs.  Do you think you can predict all the winners?

To raise funds for the club, we are running a medal table predictor and asking you to predict the top 10 nations on the medal table. The 2016 championships saw 27 different countries appear on the medals table but we are only asking you to predict the top 10 nations.
