The Winter Olympics is here and the world is watching. Vancouver is a winter wonderland at the moment and its Canada’s turn to show everyone what a great country we have. It is the best possible time to be enjoying the Games and the Canadian athletes are doing their bit as well by showing just how talented they are when it comes to winter sports.
The Australians were crying when their own Canadian born, Dale Begg-Smith was defeated in the moguls by Montreal’s Alexandre Bilodeau. He made history by becoming the first ever Canadian to win a gold medal on home soil. It will be one of the enduring images of the Games but don’t be surprised if there are many more moments when the red maple leaf is winched up the flagpole.
888sport has a huge range of markets up for the Winter Olympics and you can pretty much bet on any sport you take a fancy. Let’s face it; the major event will be when our men and women’s hockey teams compete, but the Olympics offers so much more in terms of variety and of course betting options. So why not celebrate all of our athletes?
Have a look at Canada’s chances in most of the events. I think you will be amazed at just how many medals we could be in for. Outside of the hockey (that we will win for sure) we have a great chance in the alpine skiing and the snowboarding. Also expect us to do well in lots of the freestyle sports that include mogul skiing and the freestyle itself. Curling might be a little slower than the majority of the other sports at the Games but it’s certainly another event where we could be tasting gold at the end of the two weeks.
This is our games so kick back, enjoy, and win a few dollars along the way. And most of all cheer on all of our athletes.
