The Gold Medal looks to be Denmark’s to lose in this evening’s Track Team Pursuit, but we can add value to our bet by combing that with Great Britain riding into the medal in a Same Game Multi.
Denmark have been nothing short of outstanding in this event for several season now, breaking the world record on several occasions.
While the Brits aren’t what they were at London 2012, they have continued to return consistent and competitive results, and they are certainly the value in the three remaining nations.
Australia boasts a live hope of medalling in the Men’s 800m with Peter Bol, and I am more than keen to dive in on the patriotic punt.
Bol’s rise to prominence in Australian running has been a storied one, and there simply isn’t an athlete on our team that is more deserving of his place, and a crack at a medal.
He enjoyed a career high on Monday night when an impressive winner of his 800m semi-final, and while a Gold Medal would require him to go to a whole new level again, I think that he can run onto the podium.
