WH Hail Worlds 2011 And Predict £50m London Olympics

 

WILLIAM HILL have compiled a list of their top ten turnover events at the World Athletics Championships and it is surprisingly headed by the Mens 4x100m relay - which also turned out to be their biggest losing track and field event.

'The Relay, which obviously featured Usain Bolt, attracted several of the biggest bets we took, including an £8000 wager on eventual winners, Jamaica. But the biggest we took on any event was a winning £10,000 bet in the Mens Heptathlon' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. 'Overall we ended up with a modest profit'

 

Seven of the top ten turnover events were male competitions, three of them female.

 

'We used the World Championships to fine tune our plans for the Olympics next year, and we are optimistic that we will break the £10million turnover barrier for the first time, which would indicate an industry turnover of some £50million. We also plan to bet on EVERY single event at the Olympics' added Sharpe.
