Which Brits Will Be Great This Summer?

With a fortnight until the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics William Hill give a rundown of the hottest prospects for gold this summer.

Team GB are 40/1 to top the medal table on home soil with the USA odds on favourites at 8/13. China are 6/5 second favourites.
Athletics captain Dai Greene will be competing in the 400m Hurdles and is a 3/1 chance with William Hill for gold in a tough looking event. Greene is the second favourite behind 6/4 chance Javier Culson. American Andre Taylor is 9/2. Greene is 4/6 to win any coloured medal.

Alastair Brownlee and his brother Jonathan top the market in the men's triathlon as Team GB could well clean up in this event. Alistair is the odds on 1/2 favourite to win gold while Jonathan is 11/4.

Mark Cavendish is Britain's hope in the Road Cycling event and is quoted at 2/1 with William Hill as the favourite to win gold. Peter Sagan is 3/1 and Phillipe Gilbert is 6/1.

Mo Farah will be racing in the 5,000m and 10,000m races at this summer's games. He is 6/4 to pick up a gold medal in the 5,000m and 2/1 for gold in the 10,000m. He is 2/5 in both events to pick up a medal.

GB poster girl Jessica Ennis missed out in Beijing in 2008 but will be more determined than ever this summer. The Heptathlete is fancied at 4/5 for gold. She has competition from Tatyana Chernova at 5/2 and Nataliya Dobryanska at 7/1.

Rebecca Adlington is expected to be amongst the medals in London this time around and is odds on at 4/9 to win gold in the 800m freestyle. 2/1 chance Lottie Fris is Adlington's nearest challenger.

Adlington may be up against it in the 400m freestyle as Camille Muffat is fancied for gold at 1/2 but Adlington's chances are high as an 11/4 second favourite. Two medals could well be on the cards for the British swimmer again.

The Great British men's relay team could also count their chances of earning a medal as realistic even though they have to come up against the all conquering Jamaica team. GB are 20/1 for gold with Jamaica highly fancied at 2/7 to blow the competition away. Team GB are 5/2 to get their hands on any kind of medal.

The GB rowing team have the potential to do very well on water this summer especially in the Men's Fours event where GB are 8/15 to pick up gold. Australia are 6/4, Greece 8/1 and Germany a 12/1 to chance to be on top of the podium.
