Beijing gold medallist Steve Hooker is attracting plenty of support from punters in his bid for back to back gold in the Men’s Pole Vault. Hooker has firmed from $12.00 into $7.00 with Sportingbet Australia after easing through to the final.

Sportingbet Australia CEO Michael Sullivan said there’s been a steady stream of cash for Hooker to win gold.

“Punters are finally confident Hooker is over the yips that plagued his Olympic build up and they’ve opened their wallets”, Sullivan said.

“They’ve been lining up to back him since his impressive qualifying jump”.

Despite the new found support for Hooker, Frenchmen Renaud Lavillenie remains a solid $1.90 favourite.

“We’ve taken a number of four figure bets on Lavillenie at the short odds”, Sullivan said.

Germany’s Bjorn Otto is second favourite at $6.00
