Dame Trott And Sir Kenny 50/1 To Have Medal Winning Children?

Laura Trott is 2/5 to be made a Dame in 2017 while her husband to be, Jason Kenny is just 1/8 to be knighted. The pair are 6/1 (Kenny) and 7/1 (Trott) to win this year’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year.

After Laura Trott tweeted about any future kids of hers and Jason Kenny’s getting their genes, it is 50/1 for any future Kenny/Trott child to win an Olympic medal.

“In the past we have offered 500/1 about Kai Rooney playing for England, we also took bets at 100/1 for Jaden Agassi to win Wimbledon but 50/1 is the shortest we have ever offered. This is one we think has a real possibility, despite any future Kenny/Trott offspring being but a twinkle in their future parents’ eyes,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
