Grant Hackett in the odds to make Australian Rio Olympic team

Grant Hackett’s remarkable comeback to the pool looks to have only just begun, with the freestyle champion good odds to wear the green and gold on the biggest stage of all one more time.

With his good showing at the National Championships, Hackett has been priced at $3.00 with online bookmaker to make the Rio Olympic team.

Remarkably, he may have to make room in the trophy cabinet after the Olympics, with $5.00 on offer for him to win a medal and $10 to come home with Gold.

Teammate James Magnussen may be under the pump at the moment but looks set to rediscover his form when it counts – $6.00 to win Gold in Rio.

“Hackett is on cloud nine and The Missile is flat after losing over the weekend. Either way, the odds show they won’t be in the deep end come Rio and a trip to the medal podium is on the cards,” said’s Shaun Anderson.
