Olympics 2012: Jess and Mo Set To Lead GB Medal Rush!

Following the announcement of the GB Athletics Team today, William Hill expect the squad to outperform their efforts in Beijing.

In 2008, the Great British track and field squad came home with four medals of varying colour and William Hill make them 1/1 to win over seven medals of any colour on home soil. It is 6/4 that less than seven medals are won and 4/1 that there are dead on seven.

The men's squad have been made favourites to outperform their female counterparts and are 1/3 to score more medals in London. The Women are 9/4 to win more.

Hill's also offer 5/1 that any Great British athlete breaks a World Record at these Olympic Games.

In addition, William Hill have priced up the medal performances for all the key members of the squad.

Looking at the women first, the best chance of Gold is Jess Ennis (4/6) with long jumper Shara Proctor our next best chance to top the podium (8/1).

Amongst the men, William Hill rate the long distance talents of Mo Farah as our best chance of glory, pricing him at 6/4 to win Gold in the 5,000m and 2/1 to win the 10,000m.

Other main chances look to be Dai Greene in the 400m Hurdles (3/1), Phillips Idowu in the Triple Jump (7/2) and Greg Rutherford in the Long Jump (7/2).

William Hill spokesman, Rupert Adams, said, "Following the tremendous performance of Team GB at the 2011 World Championships in Daegu when the squad returned home with seven medals, including two golds, we are expecting our team to outperform those results, making them evens to win more than seven medals in London. Although Jess Ennis represents our best chance of Gold, we feel that overall, the Men have a better chance of getting the share of the medals in the Olympic Stadium."
