SWIMMERS SET FOR GOLDEN DAY IN THE POOL

• Four Australian swimmers will tomorrow race for individual medals.
• The Australian rowing foursome is $1.61 favourite to capture gold in quadruple sculls.
• Cyclist Rohan Dennis has shrugged of a training mishap and is third favourite, at $8.00, to win gold in the men’s time trial.

Griffith University student Cameron McEvoy finished second in his semi-final, but remains the $1.91 favourite to win the 100m freestyle final.

Adelaide teenager Kyle Chalmers rocketed into $4.00 third favourite after his stunning semi-final win with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.

Australia will also have two swimmers in the women’s 200m butterfly final. Madeline Groves heads betting at $2.20, while teammate Brianna Throssell is a $34 outsider.
The Aussies may have to settle for a minor medal in the women’s 4x200m relay final. The powerhouse USA team is $1.11 favourites ahead of China ($9.50) and Australia ($10).

“Australia should be right in the medal hunt again and gold is a real possibility, especially in the pool. Cameron McEvoy looks the one to beat in the 100m freestyle final, but Chalmers can’t be discounted. He turned at the 50m mark in seventh, but powered home to win his semi-final. The girls were also super impressive in the 200m butterfly semi-finals,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
