World Athletics Championships

All good things come to an end - but dare we hope that this doesn’t happen during the World Athletics Championships, which get underway this weekend? Following the success of the British in both the 2012 Olympics and other events subsequently, we should probably not get too excited about our medal hopes this time around, especially with heptathlon queen Jessica Ennis-Hill out of the picture.   

Nevertheless, Neil Black, the Performance Director at UK Athletics, claims that Team GB is, in the main, better prepared than last summer.

We certainly have a strong gold medal hope in the shape of Mo Farah, who will be competing in both the 5,000 and 10,000 events. The reigning Olympic champion at both distances, he almost managed the double at the 2011 World Championships, where he won ‘only’ the silver in the longer race. He’s currently 1/2 to be world champion at 5,000, and if you’re lucky you might still find 3/10 for him to win gold at 10,000, with 2/7 (and even 1/4) looking more likely prices.

We’ve waited a long time for a British sprinting hope, and James Dasaolu might well fit the bill. Last month the 25-year-old registered the second fastest 100m by a Briton with an impressive 9.91 seconds. Assuming he has recovered from a hip problem he has a genuine chance of a medal in Russia, and is available through gambling4mobiles at 4/1 to finish in the top three. Alternatively, he’s 12/1 to be the best of the rest in the ‘without Bolt’ market.

It’s interesting how sports personalities who seem on a different planet to their closest rivals attract doubt from those who we might expect to know better, based on circumstances in which a less than perfect result might be less important than other factors. When Usain Bolt first appeared on the scene, towering over the rest in both stature and class, he was universally described as unbeatable. Then a couple of others came along to spoil the party and hint at potential cracks in the Jamaican giant’s armour but, apart from the fact that certain pretenders to the throne are now in the dock accused of cheating, Bolt appears just as likely to dominate as he did when winning everything else. Mobile sports betting fans don’t exactly like it when the online oddsmakers are accurate in their pre-event assessments, but we have to respect that they so often know their onions, and it is difficult to argue with the 1/5 that the charismatic Bolt will pick up gold in both the 100m and 200m. the challenge is do we have the courage to agree with them at such short odds.
