Australia’s new athletics poster boy Jack Hale had better make sure he has a valid passport, with the sprinter destined to wear green and gold at the 2016 Olympics.
Despite being only 16, the speedster is a better than toss of the coin odds to compete on the biggest stage of them all, priced at $1.80 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au to run at Rio.
Competing is one thing, but coming away with some bling is still a long shot – $101 to win a medal at the Olympics and $501 to win gold.
Usain Bolt doesn’t have to worry about cutting back on the chicken nuggets any time soon, with $1001 priced for Hale to break the 100 metre record.
“The Olympics is two years away, but we think you can lock Jack in for a place in the team. Coming home with a medal is an outside chance, but we would be happy to be proven wrong!” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
