How we have longed to have Keirin markets.
This form of cycling was actually invented by the Japanese so that people could have a punt and for that, we are eternally grateful.
Keirin involves a bunch of track cyclists starting behind a motorbike for a couple of laps around a Velodrome until they are let loose and sprint around in what is actually an awesome sport to watch.
It’s actually part of the Olympic program and has been since Sydney 2000.
Given this is our first crack at Keirin punting, we’ve cast our eye on Race 5 in Odawara Kanagawa we’ll have a crack at Ueki at lane 9 who is the $1.80 favourite.
While it’s the easy option, it’s our first crack and as we get to know this fine sport before you know it Available World of Sports will be your number one Keirin punting resource.
The Setka Cup of Table Tennis action heats up as comeback king Volodymr Voronekov takes on young gun Leonid Boiko in what is set to be a fascinating matchup.
Voronekov started his Setka Cup campaign winning his first four matches, before a three-game losing streak but with his back against the wall, he came back with a 3-0 win over Anatoly Levshin.
His opponent, Leonid Boiko hasn’t been in the best of form recently.
He has only won one game out of his past seven and was thrashed 3-1 in his most recent matchup against Voronenkov.
I get the feeling it’s going to be a bad day for Boiko, especially now that Voronekov has found his mojo once again.
I’m expecting straight sets in this one.
Melbourne is in for a typical Melbourne day with a bit of rain, a bit of sun.
You’re classic just go inside for five minutes and wait for the weather to change type situation.
After watching Jane Bunn’s forecast (below) I’m predicting the first decimal place in the Melbourne forecast to be even at 2 pm.
Because on a day where the weather is everywhere in Melbourne, you’d expect it to be even – because that’s how Melbourne rolls.
We have rain overnight. Dry breaks in the morning, then widespread showers for the afternoon. Across the Melbourne area we're looking at 10 to 20mms. The city is 21C. Rain eases in the morning, but lots of showers in the afternoon. 7NEWS meteorologist @JaneBunn. #7NEWS pic.twitter.com/L4d8kYQzyg
