can I use 'none' for this sentence? Sentence: You'll have a silver medal while I'll have none. I want to say that someone will definitely win the medal and I won't get any medal at all. Which is the right way to say that? I'd prefer to use 'none' here, or is it just wrong?

You're definitely going to win one, while I'm not going to win any. **It's rather difficult to express 100% certainty in the future.** You'll win one while I won't win any. You'll win one and I'll win none. (probably the one you're looking for)
