Last month, ninth grader Madison Sternoff took part in a national competition to predict the outcome of the Winter Olympics.

Students chose five countries that they believed would be updated daily in the new most, the 10 countries they believed would win the most metals, and their 10 picks in the order they thought would finish on the medal table.

Sternoff placed second in the nation out of tens of thousands of students and was one of only three students to outpredict.

“Yeah, it was exciting. It was surprising and unexpected,” said Sternoff.

Sternoff was honored with a Team USA Winter Olympics iPad from SportsEngine!
