Rudman: Medal hope

Sky Bet make Shelley Rudman the pick of Britain's individual medals hopes at this year's Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

The 28-year-old, silver medallist in Turin in 2006, is a 7/1 shot in the Winter Olympics betting markets to win the women's skeleton.

British skier Chemmy Alcott is also a 3/1 shot to achieve a top 10 finish in any skiing event, while Britain's other medal hopes include the men's curling team, who are 7/2 shots to win gold with the women's team 12/1 in the betting.

Punters can also bet on how many medals Britain will win at this year's Olympics with three medals a 7/4 shot.

Meanwhile, Sky Bet are also offering odds on Norwegian biathlete Ole Einar Bjoerndalen who is aiming for four gold medals in Vancouver to become the greatest Winter Olympian of all time.

The bookmaker go 8/1 that he breaks the record for most golds (eight), held by cross-country skier Bjoern Daehlie. It's 100/30 that he takes three golds to equal the record.

He has five opportunities to win gold in Vancouver and is among the favourites in every race.

The 36-year-old biathlete has been very well backed in all his events and has been cut to 6/4 (from 11/4) for the 10km sprint, to 6/4 (from 4/1) in the 12.5km pursuit, to 6/4 (from 7/2) in the individual and to 6/4 (from 3/1) in the mass start.
