Bookies Expect Bolt To Shine In Rio

Bookmakers William Hill expect Usain Bolt to bring his best in Rio next year. The Jamaican sensation added a third gold at the World Championships, along with his national teammates, as they romped home in the 4x100m relay.

William Hill offer 5/2 that Bolt sweeps up the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at next year’s Olympic Games.

It’s Even-Money (1/1) that he wins two golds, 5/2 that he wins one gold and perhaps unsurprisingly, the outsider in the betting at 16/1 is for Bolt to come home from Brazil empty handed.

“Usain Bolt is one of the greatest athletes of all time and all eyes will be on him in Rio next year,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
