A bank stopped looking at the world's economy. It predicted how many medals countries will win at the Rio Olympics. There are no real surprises. Most people know the USA and China will win the most. The bank said Great Britain will finish third. It also thinks India will win just one gold medal.

There is good news for Brazil. The bank thinks Brazil will win five gold medals. This would be Brazil's highest ever number. The Olympics will be good for Brazil. Thousands of athletes and visitors will come. They will get into the Olympic spirit. This will help the Brazilian economy. The Rio Olympics will be one of the best.
