Women’s short track speed skating is an exhilarating sport, held on a rink that looks like an ice rink. There are a few different distances the athletes can compete in, ranging from the short 500 meters, to the longer 3000 meters. There is also a relay race available in the 3000 meter category.

The shortest distance produces some of the most exciting races, as the competitors have to be jockeying for first from the start. In terms of gambling, two big bookies, William Hill and Pinnacle Sports Sports both have the same favorite to take the gold, although she is not totally clear cut. Fan Kexin of China is the favorite, with William Hill offering odds of 2.75 and Pinnacle offering odds of 2.77, both quite close but Pinnacle Sports would be the way to be if you think she will win.
