Plastic Brits Could Be Hits At London 2012!
Delano Williams is set to become the latest overseas athlete to try their hand in a Team GB vest and William Hill are offering 8/11 that he competes for Team GB at the Olympics in the 200m. Should he qualify, however, Hills think he will struggle to make an impression, offering 7/2 he makes the final, 33/1 he wins a medal and 200/1 he wins gold.
"Delano Williams is definitely one for the future," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "He is not expected to make much of an impression on the field at this Games, but it may not stay that way for long."
Other so-called ‘plastic Brits' who will be competing are Yamile Aldama (5/1 for triple jump gold), Tiffany Porter (10/1 for 100m hurdles gold) and Shara Proctor (16/1 for long jump gold).
