Predictions:

The Americans are favored to win this one. This is because the pair has more experience than Brazil’s duo. To prove this, Jennings already won three gold medals in the past three Olympic Games, while Ross bagged the silver in the 2012 London Olympics of the same event.

Agatha and Barbara could only hope that their American opponents would struggle because of their home crowd.
