Olympics: DeGrasse Favoured To Win 200 Metres

Canada's Andre DeGrasse is the 2.75 favourite in the Olympic odds to win the gold medal in the men's 200-metre final at the Tokyo Summer Olympic Games. DeGrasse won the silver medal at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Games. He's already won a bronze medal in the 100 metres at the Tokyo Games. Overall, he's won four Olympic medals so far during his career. His three medals in Rio were a Canadian Olympic track record.

Betting on the 200m Dash

  • Canada's Andre DeGrasse is favoured to win the Tokyo Summer Olympic Games men's 200-metre race on Wednesday, August 4
  • He ran a Canadian-record time of 19.73 seconds in the semifinals
  • DeGrasse is seeking his fifth Olympic track and field medal

Andre DeGrasse is what's best described in sports as a big-game player. When the biggest moments arrive, he's always on top of his game. Such has again been the case at the Tokyo Summer Olympic Games.

DeGrasse was considered to be outside of the medal contenders in the Olympic betting odds for the men's 100 metres. However, when the final was run, DeGrasse brought his A-game. He delivered his second straight Olympic bronze medal performance, finishing third in the race.

Oddsmakers are expecting DeGrasse to accomplish something in the Olympic men's 200 metres that he's never achieved at the Summer Games. DeGrasse is the 2.75 gold medal betting favourite in the race.

DeGrasse will be seeking his fifth Olympic medal when he goes to the starting line for the 200 metres. A medal-winning performance would extend his own record for medals won by a Canadian male track and field athlete at the Olympic Games.

Canadian Olympic Legend

De Grasse first came to international prominence when he won bronze medals in the 100 metres and the 4x100-metre relay at the 2015 World Athletics Championships in Beijing. He also won the bronze in the 100 metres and the silver in the 200 metres at the 2019 World Athletics Championships in Doha.

De Grasse is the first Canadian sprinter to win three medals in a single Olympics. His feat bettered the two medals in a single Olympics that were won by Canadian sprinters Donovan Bailey and Percy Williams.

He's seeking to become the first Canadian since Williams in 1928 to win the gold medal in the Olympic men's 200 metres.
