Gold medal winners Kaylee McKeown and Ariarne Titmus are both odds on to add another Olympic victory to their name at Tokyo 2020.
McKeown won Australia’s second individual gold medal in Tokyo and, along with Titmus, is long odds-on to win another.
McKeown is $1.40 with TAB to add Saturday’s Women’s 200m Backstroke gold to the 100m version she won earlier.
McKeown entered The Games the $1.90 favourite for the 100m, eased to $2.40 after the semis but was still responsible for 95% of money wagered.
Titmus is even shorter to win 200m Freestyle gold on Wednesday. The 400m Freestyle gold medallist has been responsible for more than 80% of money bet on 200m Final.
Despite the presence of US legend Katie Ledecky, Titmus has firmed from $1.35 into $1.33 after being fastest qualifier for the final.
The Men’s 4x200m Freestyle Relay Final is also on Wednesday with Australia $2.60 second favourites behind Great Britain ($1.75).
Maddy Gough ($26) and Kiah Melverton ($51) will fly the Aussie flag in the Women’s 1500m Freestyle Final but have $1.10 favourite Ledecky to contend with.
Jess Fox is another Aussie woman odds-on for gold in an event that starts on Wednesday. Fox is $1.80 in the C-1 Slalom, the heats for which commence on Wednesday.
