Olympic Discus Odds

Discus Betting

An athlete holding a discus has been one of the iconic images of the Olympic Games since ancient times. As with the javelin the discus is divided into male and female competitions with different regulations surrounding the size and weight of the object depending on gender. The men's discus weighs 2kg with a diameter of 219 -222mm whereas the women's weighs in at 1kg and has a diameter of 180-182mm. This explains the interesting reading when it comes to records, the Women€™s World record set in 1988 is held by Gabriele Reinsch of GDR and stands at 76.08m whereas her compatriot Jurgen Schukt claimed the World Record in 1986 with 74.08m.
