On the off chance that the Olympics actually occur this Summer, you are welcome to participate in the BBS' very own Olympic Betting Masters competition.

Previous Winners

2008 Beijing - pauldrulez
2012 London - Stigma
2014 Sochi - srs9jps

The rules are as follows:


Bets only allowed on Olympic events.

If you are interested, declare your In-ness by the Opening Ceremonies.

Each entrant will have 35 bets.

Of your 35 bets you will have 20 Bronze bets which will be the normal 10pts - 10 Silver bets which will be 15pts and 5 Gold bets which will be worth 20pts per bet. Please indicate when placing a bet what value it is by putting a B, S or G next to it.

The Ostapchuk Rule: If one of your bets is affected by a competitor getting a positive drug test, it must happen before the penultimate day of competition. This is to make sure everyone has a chance to counterbet.


In previous iterations of the competition, we've had each bettor name an event that everybody has to bet on and last time in Sochi we had a random event picked every day that everybody had to bet on. Since the summer games are a little longer, that's probably not the best idea but I'm taking suggestions on how the required bets are decided.

Here's a good look at a calendar showing when events run and when medals are awarded. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_Summer_Olympics#Calendar

Will there be a separate section for bet on the amount of daily muggings?

Will there be a separate section for bet on the amount of daily muggings?

Maybe the number of yachtsmen that get dysentery.

I'd say that maybe picking a random event from each sport alongside the top 10 track and field events may be a good starting point?

I'd say that maybe picking a random event from each sport alongside the top 10 track and field events may be a good starting point?

I guess it depends on how many people we get.

The 2016 Summer Olympic program features 28 sports and a total of 41 disciplines and 306 events.

I see a pattern there. I think we should just eschew the picking of mandatory events in case of late arrivals. So you can start your betting at any time.

Couple things. I assume that you are picking Clement to win the 400m hurdles. Next, if you win half of those bets I don't think there would be enough longshots left to catch you. Third, I am making a rule next time that you have to list your bets with decimal odds. ******* with these fractions blows goats.
