One of the most popular events will surely be the men’s 100 metres sprint. You may remember at the last Olympics in 2008, Usain Bolt smashed the world records in both this and the 200 metre events, so all eyes will be on him again this year to see if his total domination of the men’s sprint events can continue.
In other events such as cycling and the women’s marathon, athletes from the home country of Britain (or ‘Team GB’) will be aiming to have another great year after having done so well in 2008.

Simply choose a sportsbook company that’s giving you the best odds as well as the best promotional offer (such as a free bet) and then enjoy the event. Hopefully you can make some money from enjoying your favourite Olympic sport and watching the best athletes in the world compete. Good luck!
