Local punter, Greg Waterman (35) has spent the last 12 hours placing wildly unfounded bets on extremely obscure Olympic events.
“It started with the swimming. I like to think that I know a bit about Australia’s Olympic strongsuit,” he says.
“The ping pong was a bit more of an exciting bet. I really was doing some research on the couch today, and yesterday.”
However, not even a couple events into the second day of the 2016 Rio Olympics, Greg says he has become a bit of a mug punter, and may be out of his depth.
“Fucking Ginny Thrasher (USA)!” he says
“How was I to know she’d be the pulling off an upset in the women’s 10-meter air rifle like that, I didn’t even pick her as one of the qualifiers,”
“I had tipped Yi Siling (China) but she only took out third – a waste of 5k!”
Thrasher, 19, beat silver medalist Du Li of China in the final round with a total of 208.0, setting an Olympic record in the finals. Du finished with 207.0.
