Men's 400 Hurdles Olympic Odds
LONDON, England (TheSpread) – The Men’s 400 Meter Hurdles should be a pretty competitive event at the 2012 Olympics. Here is a look at the odds to win this event.
According to oddsmakers, Puerto Rico’s Javier Culson is the favorite in this event, as he has odds of 3/2 to win. Other short odds to win are Great Britain’s David Greene (3/1) and Angelo Taylor (7/2) of the United States.
Culson competed in the 2008 Olympics, but failed to make it past the semifinals. He is the silver medalist in this event in the 2011 and 2009 World Championships.
Greene is the defending World Champion in this event, as he won in the 2011 competition. He is also the 2010 European Champion in the 400 hurdles. He will be competing in his first Olympics.
Taylor is the veteran of the group, but he also is the 2000 and 2008 Olympic gold medalist in this event. He has also been part of four world championship 4x400 relay teams.
