70% of the money has gone on Aussie Jarred Tallent in tomorrow night’s 50km walk.

Tallent is on the third line of betting at $5.00 behind Matej Toth ($3.75) and Yohann Diniz ($4.00).

But before that, Canoeists Ken Wallace and Lachlan Tame are the third favourites at $6.00 for tonight’sfinal of the K2 1000m event. Germany looks the team to beat at $1.80.
