Team GB performed outstandingly well at London 2012 and it is 2/1 that they emulate their top three place in the medal table when the Olympics head to Rio in 2016.
With the London 2012 Olympic Games drawing to a close, bookmakers and punters are already thinking ahead to Rio in four years time, and Coral
are offering a number of odds on some of the successes of the last two weeks.
USA is 4-7 to once again top the medal table, while Team GB is 2-1 to repeat their success of a top three finish. Usain Bolt is 7-1 to win both the 100m and 200m for the third Games in a row, and Mo Farah is 16-1 to repeat his wins in the 5 and 10,000m.
“The success of these Games, and in particular the British team, has resulted in a huge number of enquiries for potential winners in four years time,” said Coral spokesman Gary Burton, “the road to Rio has already started for us!”
