Olympics betting odds at Coral
After being postponed last year, the long-awaited 2020 Summer Olympics are due to take place in Tokyo from Friday 23rd July to Sunday 8th August 2021. There are a total of 339 events in 33 sports set to be contested by more than 11,000 athletes from 205 nations, making it one of the most diverse and inclusive international sporting competitions.
As well as the track and field athletics, you can also catch swimming, cycling, tennis, football, sailing and much more, as well as new events including karate, skateboarding and surfing. Fast-paced track events like the 100m often catch the eye as athletes compete to be crowned the world’s fastest man or woman, with Jamaicans Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce having won multiple Olympic gold medals in the sprints.
Meanwhile, long distance runner Sir Mo Farah and multi-eventer Dame Jessica Ennis Hill have provided notable sporting memories with their on-track success in recent times. This year, we’ll be watching every minute of the action and providing you with the latest live odds on the Olympics, a wide range of betting markets and different ways to bet – whichever events take your fancy.

This year there are plenty of potential new Olympic champions waiting to be crowned. The USA squad traditionally tops the overall medal table and is once more packed with talent – watch out for rapid hurdlers Sydney McLaughlin and Dalilah Muhammad, as well as gold medal gymnast Simone Biles – while China often dominates events like gymnastics, diving and shooting.
Great Britain has emerged as a real Olympic contender in recent years, finishing in the top four nations at the past three summer games. In 2021 you’ll want to look out for heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson – can she beat old rival Nafi Thiam to claim the gold? And will sprint superstar Dina Asher-Smith, one of the favourites for the 100m and 200m, make good on her impressive recent form?
And as always, the east African nations of Kenya and Ethiopia will field strong long-distance runners, with Letesenbet Gidey arriving on the back of her recent world-record breaking run in the women’s 10,000m. There’s plenty to look forward to at Tokyo 2021, and we can’t wait to see what the Olympics has in store.
