In a general look at the odds, the countries with the most to gain at this Olympics appears to be Great Britain and New Zealand. Of the 14 events, New Zealand is favored to win gold in four of them, while the host country of Great Britain is favored in four events as well. For the United States, it is favored in just one event, that is the Women’s Eight, in which the United States has 1/4 odds to claim gold.

Of the countries that still exist, the United States has claimed the most gold medals (31) and overall medals (84) in rowing in Olympic history. Great Britain has won 24 gold medals in rowing while New Zealand has claimed just six. At the 2008 games, Great Britain claimed six medals in 14 events, including two golds. The United States earned one gold (Women’s Eight) and had a total of three medals.

In the 2011 World Championships, which features a total of 22 events instead of 14, Great Britain managed to claim the most victories, with five, while New Zealand won four events. The United States won gold in two (Women’s Eight & Women’s Four).

In the individual events, New Zealand’s Mahe Drysdale is favored to win Men’s Single Sculls, as he has 3/2 odds. In Women’s Single Sculls, Ekaterina Karsten Khodotovich of Belarus is favored with 11/10 odds. Drysdale won the bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics and is he is the 2011 World Champion in this event. Khodotovich has competed in four Olympics already and won gold in 1996 and 2000, while taking silver in 2004 and bronze in 2008.
