  • 7 bets placed on Kitty Chiller at $101
  • One punter stakes $25 on Chiller to be closing ceremony flag bearer

Yes, that’s right….Sportsbet has taken 7 bets on Chiller to be the flag bearer at odds of $101 including one punter who’s placed $25 on it to happen.

McKeon’s expulsion has seen rowing gold medallist Kim Brennan shorten as favourite from $1.87 into $1.40. 100m freestyle gold medallist Kyle Chalmers is next at $7.50, with Tom Burton sailing into $9.00 after winning gold.

“Quite clearly, we put Kitty Chiller in the market as a bit of a laugh and we were surprised as anyone to see 7 bets roll in on her to be the flag bearer,” said’s Christian Jantzen.
