Don’t be sad it’s (nearly) over, be glad it happened.
The flame will shortly go out on another memorable games for Team GB, with Britain moving fourth in the medal table on Friday courtesy of a stunning display of Madison cycling by the faultless Laura Kenny and Katie Archibald.
Can Team GB sign off from Tokyo with a few last-gasp medals?
We’ve taken a look at the latest Olympics betting to assess the likely GB contenders over the final weekend of action…
Olympics Betting Tips | Britain’s Best Bets For Gold
GB still have strong remaining hopes at the track, velodrome and boxing ring this weekend…
🥇 GALAL YAFAI and LAUREN PRICE
Boxing, Men’s Flyweight (52kg), Sat, 06:00
Boxing, Women’s Middleweight (75kg), Sun, 06:45
What a fortnight for British Olympic boxing.
We’ve already known for a while now that this will be GB’s greatest ever games in the boxing ring, with a record haul coming home for Japan.
However, this talented British squad are still chasing an elusive gold, with two late chances to come this weekend as Galal Yafai and Lauren Price slug it out for gold in their respective finals.
Yafai is a firm 16/25 to finally land GB boxers’ the breakthrough they’ve been craving at these games, and he came through a tough encounter with a spirited Saken Bibossinov to book his place in this final. The 28-year-old comes from a boxing dynasty, with both of his older brothers medallists at European level.
Price always looked one of GB’s likelier shots to take top billing even before nervously sealing her place in Sunday’s final.
The Welsh star hasn’t looked back since putting her football career on the backburner for a shot at boxing glory, and Olympic gold looks the last missing piece of the puzzle after previously landing top honours at Commonwealth, European and World level.
She’s 53/50 to complete a clean sweep by going on to triumph at this weekend’s final.
🥇 TOM DALEY
Diving, Men’s 10m Individual Platform, Sat, from 02:00
All that needlework looks to be having the desired effect for a relaxed Daley.
With a long-coveted gold finally around his neck, Daley will have one eye on adding to his tally provided he can remain composed in the semi-finals in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The 27-year-old recovered from a sluggish start in qualifying to keep his hopes alive, recovering well to finish fourth and ease into the next stage.
Sadly, he won’t be joined by teammate Noah Williams, who could only manage a 27th place finish at his debut Olympics. Daley will have to be at the top of his game to double his gold tally, with two of his Chinese rivals putting the marker down in the prelims.
🥇 MATTHEW WALLS AND ETHAN HAYTER – 7/1
Track Cycling, Men’s Madison, Sat from 08:55
He’s back for round two.
Just 48 hours on from the barnstorming Omnium success that saw Britain seal their first gold on the track, Matthew Walls will be hoping to make extra space in his luggage for a second medal as he pairs up with Ethan Hayter in the Madison.
There could yet be a British whitewash in this discipline after Laura Kenny and Katie Archibald’s impeccable ride yesterday, but the GB men are considered an outside shot for this, with a slick Danish duo ranked as 151/100 favourites.
🥇 JOE CHOONG – 67/100
Modern Pentathlon, Men’s Competition, Sat, from 06:30
Don’t know much about Modern Pentathlon even after Katie French’s astonishing gold on Friday?
Don’t worry. Sit back and enjoy the madness.
Often considered the most eccentric event of the entire Olympics, this sport really rewards the sporting everyman as athletes battle for supremacy across a series of events – fencing, freestyle swimming, equestrian show-jumping, pistol shooting and cross country running.
It’s often a rewarding watch given the unpredictability from one event to the next – and even more so this year for British fans watching over a lazy weekend breakfast .
GB athlete Joe Choong is the 67/100 favourite to take the title having improved significantly since his 10th place at Rio, picking up gold and silver medals at European and World level since 2016.
🥇 LAURA KENNY – 61/10
Track Cycling, Women’s Omnium, Sun from 02:00
Finally, could the undisputed queen of British cycling make it a magnificent seven on Sunday and close off the games in style for GB.
The six-time Olympic medallist could be just a few races from creating even more history for British women’s sport if she can come through the tactical battle that is the Omnium unscathed just hours before the Closing Ceremony.
Given her status as the two-time defending champion in this race, Kenny’s astute judgement could see her outsmart some of her younger rivals even if on speed alone she’s not the current favourite.
The fiercely competitive Kenny is a 17/5 chance to bring up the hat-trick in one of her favourite track battles.
