Unlike the other men’s track events, keirin looks to be up for grabs amongst a field of strong competitors. Germany’s Joachim Eilers is the current UCI world champion and the slight favorite heading into this event.  Frenchman Francois Pervis, who held that title from 2014-2015, will certainly contest Eilers. Also watch for New Zealand’s Ed Dawkins and Great Britain’s Jason Kenny near the top of the leaderboard. 




Women's odds:

Kristina Vogel (GER) - 23/10

Anna Meares (AUS) - 13/4

Guo Shuang (CHN) - 5/1

Rebecca James (GBR) - 15/2

Junhong Lin (CHN) - 12/1

Lee Wai Sze (HKG) - 14/1

Elis Ligtlee (NED) - 16/1

Stephanie Morton (AUS) - 16/1

Anastasiia Voinova (RUS) - 28/1

Reigning world champion Kristina Vogel of Germany should be the woman to beat. Team GB’s Victoria Pendleton won gold in London and is looking to repeat. Australia’s Anna Meares is one to watch; she finished just behind Vogel in the world championships. Team GB’s Becky James narrowly missed a selection to the London Games, but she has been on a hot streak lately and finished with the bronze at the world championships.
