2012 London Olympics: 'Beijing Beast' Predicted To Repeat In London

Phil Dalhausser has been nicknamed the "Beijing Beast" after he and partner Todd Rogers dominated the competition in Beijing at the 2008 Olympics en route to gold for the United States. Dalhausser, a native of Orlando, is 6-9 and according to Brian Cazenueve, is the favorite to repeat with Rogers as gold medalists in the 2012 London Olympics.

Cazenueve of Sports Illustrated recently predicted the medal results of every Olympic event and he expects the United States to narrowly win the medal count over China by two medals.

Zach Railey of Clearwater was predicted to finish with the bronze medal in his sailing event, the men's finn for heavyweight dinghy while his sister Paige Railey was predicted to just miss the podium in the women's laser radial with a one-person dinghy.

Danell Leyva of Miami, FL is predicted by Cazenueve to finish with the silver medal in the parallel bars in men's gymnastics.
