According to oddsmakers, Croatia’s Sandra Perkovic is the favorite to win, as she has 11/5 odds. Other short odds to win are Russia’s Darya Pishchalnikova (5/2) and Germany’s Nadine Muller (11/4).

Perkovic is 22 and competing in her first Olympics. She is the two-time defending European Champion in the discus. Europe features many of the top discus throwers in the world, so if she is the best in Europe, she likely can be best in the world.

Pishchalnivoka is 27 years old entering the Olympics. She was set to take part in the 2008 Olympics, but doping issues kept her from actually competing. She won the 2006 European Championship and recently placed 11th at the 2011 World Championship.

Muller is 26 and competing in her first Olympics. She took second in the 2011 World Championship and 2012 European Championship for discus.

The 2012 Summer Olympics will take place from London, England from July 27 through August 12 of this summer. For the complete odds for which athlete will win the gold medal in Women’s Discus, see below.
