So the Olympics have started - even though the opening ceremony is yet to take place - and I'm going to see if I can make some profit between now and the end of the Games. I ran a similar thread during the last Olympics (see below) and I'll be following the same format this time around. The Softball and Women's Football Tournaments are underway and I took positions in both markets before the first matches began, and I'll include those selections here purely for the sake of completeness.

Hi Torque.

Who did you have in the men’s 100m race, in the athletics? Do you know what the odds were pre-competition, and pre-race, for Lamont Marcell Jacobs, who somehow ended up winning it?

 

I didn't do the 100m - which is fortunate, as I'd probably have taken someone near the top of the market. No idea what the odds were on Jacobs, but they must have been pretty big.
