Slight Favourite Farah Is Up Against It In 5000m

Slight Favourite Farah Is Up Against It In 5000m

Mo Farah qualified with ease into the final of the men's 5000m but William Hill do not think he will have it all his own way on Saturday. He is the 7/4 favourite for gold but is closely followed at 15/8 by Ethiopia's Dejen Gebremeskel.

"Mo was odds-on to win the 10,000m by the time the race started but it is hard to see that happening in this race," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "The 5000m has a stronger field and Mo also has a race in his legs. It is going to be a close one."

Charlotte Dujardin is the 6/4 favourite with William Hill to scoop gold in the individual dressage to add to GB's bulging gold medal tally. Carl Hester is also the 5/1 joint second favourite so it would seem that a medal is almost certainly on the cards.

Kerri-Anne Payne started the Olympics as one of the major medal hopefuls for GB and she heads into the marathon swim as 7/4 favourite to scoop gold. Her main rival is Italy's Martina Grimaldi at 4/1.
