What worries me more than injury is disqualification for a false start, otherwise @1.55 would be a huge value.

Re: Olympics Mens 100m

Blake just beat Bolt in Jamaica running 9.79s into a headwind

Olympics has just become more interesting

Bolt has eased out to $1.70 to win the 100m now

Re: Olympics Mens 100m

Forgive me if I am wrong but I watched these races where Bolt got beat and don't believe he was running all out, tentative start due to the worries of the DQ and easing at the end when comfortable in 2nd so I personally wouldn't read too much into those recent results....

Gambling is very much swings and round abouts, the art is just not to fall off!

Agreed but based on the times Blake ran, Bolt is going to have to run at his optimum just to win unlike in the past 4 years where he has been showboating

Re: Olympics Mens 100m

You are not wrong it is gonna be a much tougher prospect this time around but if bolt is anywhere like 1.7 or better nearer the time I'd say there is defo value!

Re: Olympics Mens 100m

Bolt will peak by the finals and destroy his partner Blake,Usain is simply Insane and will become the greatest athelete the world has ever n will ever seen!In those races,it looked like his legs werent pumping or rotating as fast as it usually does!I still think he has just been giving 90% to be honest!By the time of the final Bolt could be as low as 1.30 or less!If you were in atheletics when you were young,you will know where im coming from!If there's a guy he blitzes you week in week out,your not going to beat him with extra hardwork or dieting,simply the other guy is just too good or has your measure!The thing is with the 8 man field,the other 6 or 7 competitors in their mind know theie already beaten b4 the gun goes off(its only human nature)!Saw the Bolt documentary last night and this guy is from another planet,Usain is insane in the membrane!

100m Bolt 1.57/100 m Free Magnussen 1.40 @ 2.20!
200m Bolt 1.50/100m Free Magnussen 1.40 @ 2.10!
