Olympics By Rupert Adams

Olympic Games: Super Sunday For Team GB

Team GB are 17/20 to win 54 or more medals in Rio this year and it is 10/11 that the team win 19 or more Golds. That said, the odds suggest that Team GB could struggle to win any Gold medals on day one of the Olympics with James Guy perhaps the best prospect at 8/1 to win the 400m freestyle in the pool. Chris Froome is 10/1 to deliver gold in the Men’s road race.

On Sunday Team GB’s certainty, Adam Peaty, is taking part in the 100m breaststroke and he is 1/5 to deliver Gold. Whilst controversial cyclist Lizzie Armistead is a 4/1 shot to win Gold in the road race.
