- 100m final – Usain ‘Lightning’ Bolt will be representing Jamaica during 2016 games this year and it is probably the last time we are going to see him at this sort of event as he has announced he intends to retire from athletics after the 2017 World Championships in London, and he can definitely afford to since he is the highest paid athlete ever in track and field. He has been called the world's most marketable athlete. By winning three gold medals at the 2015 World Championships, Bolt became the first athlete in the 32-year history of the IAAF athletics world championships to complete a "triple triple" making him the most successful athlete at the championships. You can bet on Usain Bolt with Unibet, we are currently offering odds on Usain Bolt to win at 11/20.
- Yohan Blake who trains alongside fellow Jamaican Usain Bolt, will also be representing Jamaica. Blake is the second fastest man ever in both 100 m & 200 m. He is tied with Tyson Gay at 100m with a personal best of 9.69 seconds as second fastest ever after Usain Bolt. There will be some big shoes to fill once Bolt retires but Yohan looks like the guy to do it. We are offering odds to bet on Yohan Blake, to win the 100m final at 23/2.
Monday, August 15
- Men’s 800m final – If you fancy a bet on the underdog Adam Kszczot, representing Poland might be your guy. Adam specializes in the 800 metres.
