China is predicted to win a record 13 Olympic medals, including a record six golds, at this month's Beijing Winter Games, according to a Virtual Medal Table forecast from data analysts Nielsen Gracenote published on Wednesday.

Such a bumper haul would beat China's previous best of 11 medals, including five golds, from the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games.

It would also be a vast improvement on the 2018 Pyeongchang Games, at which Team China won one gold, placing them 16th in the medals table.
