Will Adlington Add To Her Tally? 9/2 To Produce Double Gold!
Rebecca Adlington is a well-fancied 8/13 with William Hill to secure one gold medal for the Team GB tally and 9/2 to produce double gold.
That said, team GB's golden girl faces a strong challenge in the 400m freestyle from 1/2 market-leader Camille Muffat, with Adlington the 11/4 second-favourite. This doesn't appear to have put the patriotic betting public off though, and she has been supported in from the 7/2 available when betting opened. Adlington is a red-hot 4/9 to top the podium in her favourite event, the 800m freestyle, where Denmark's Friss is second favourite at 2/1 and Ledecky of the USA 9/2.
"Rebecca delivered in Beijing and punters are putting their cash on her to deliver once again," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
