Box­ing Lázaro Ál­varez Cla­ressa Shield

“One boxer to watch out for is Cuba’s Lázaro Ál­varez in the men’s light­weight divi­sion. Ál­varez’s style is so beau­ti­ful to watch. How­ever, the most fierce com­pe­ti­tion will be in the women’s light­weight divi­sion be­tween Ire­land’s Katie Tay­lor, France’s Estelle Mos­sely and Azer­bai­jan’s Yana Alek­seevna. Cla­ressa Shield is def­i­nitely the one to watch in the women’s mid­dleweight divi­sion.” Belinda Koo PETER Che­ung “No­vak has the strong­est chance of win­ning the gold. He’s the undis­puted num­ber one player, the fittest at the mo­ment com­pared to Rafael Nadal, Roger Fed­erer and Andy Mur­ray, and his early exit at Wim­ble­don this year will no doubt fuel his de­sire to redeem him­self. For the women, af­ter Wim­ble­don I bet Ser­ena Williams will take the gold in the sin­gles, and pos­si­bly the dou­bles too with her sis­ter Venus.” “I’m a big fan of Michael Phelps and Nathan Adrian. Nathan is my UC Berke­ley fel­low alum and both have a high chance of win­ning at least two golds and pos­si­bly one more in the re­lay.” es­ther ma Women’s Road Cy­cling Lizzie Ar­mit­stead Anna van der Breggen

“Lizzie Ar­mit­stead is in strong form on the back of her win a few months ago at the Tour of Flan­ders and is my pick to take the gold in Rio. How­ever, I be­lieve fierce com­pe­ti­tion will also come from Mar­i­anne Vos’ team­mate Anna van der Breggen, who I hear is the book­ies’ favourite.”
