British hopes for Track and Field glory boosted by weekend success
There were a number of top performances from British athletes at the London Grand Prix, most notably, Christine Ohuruogu who comfortably won the 400m, prompting William Hill to cut her from 16/1 to 7/1 to win Gold in London this summer.
Another 400m runner, this time over hurdles who also impressed was Perri Shakes-Drayton who was cut from 10/1 to 5/1 for Olympic Glory.
Mo Farah looked comfortable in the 5000m and William Hill make him 5/4 for Olympic Gold in that event and 6/4 to win the 10000m.
"GB has never been a track and field superpower but the Grand Prix at the weekend has given us a renewed hope that this year, there could be a few more medals coming out of Stratford," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Two slightly worrying signals came in the form of Dai Greene and Phillips Idowu. Greene finished second behind Javier Culson and Hills make him 3/1 to win Gold at the Olympics with the Puerto Rican the Even money favourite.
Phillips Idowu is continuously on the drift for gold in the triple jump as fitness rumours continue to circulate and he is 5/1 behind the weekend's winner Christian Taylor at 11/8.
