According to markets with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au, Grant Hackett is an even money chance of making it to this year’s Olympic Games.
The 35 year-old is priced at $2.00 to qualify for Rio, whether it be in the 200m freestyle, the 4x200m freestyle relay or both.
Should he make the team, Hackett is a $2.50 chance to win any kind of medal, and $7.00 to add to his collection of three Olympic gold.
“People might think our odds of Hackett making the team seem a bit skinny, but this is an out and out champion of the sport that we’re talking about here,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
