James ‘The Missile’ Magnussen has been installed as the $1.33 favourite by online bookmaker to win gold in the Men’s 100m freestyle at the London Olympics.

Such a favourite to win the event, Magnussen’s nearest rivals in the market, fellow Aussie James Roberts and Brazilian Cesar Cielo, are at a distant $7.00.


“It will take something very special to stop Magnussen from winning the 100m freestyle Gold medal in London,”’s Ben Hawes said.

“He will no doubt start shorter than the current $1.33 quote.”

Canadian Brent Hayden, France’s Yannick Agnel and American Nathan Adrian are on the third line of betting at $15.
