Athletics Betting

The centrepiece of every Olympics, whether ancient or modern, has been the athletics reflected in the motto 'Cittius, Altius, Fortius'(Faster, Higher, Stronger) which directly relates to the running, throwing and jumping from which the whole Olympic movement sprang. Consequently the Olympic Stadium is the hub of the whole event and Rio 2016 will be no exception. The Olympics will be host to 28 sports of which Athletics is only one, but it absorbs the majority of the games€™ publicity and interest.
