With just more than three hours before Canadians will begin competing at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, I have come up with a number. That is the number of medals Canada will win at the 2020 Summer Olympic Games. The highly anticipated number is 25. Of the 25 Canadian medals, 19 will be won by women. The six Canadian medals won by men will all come in track and field.
