Which world records are most likely to be broken at the 2012 Olympic Games?

Women’s Pole Vault

It’s quite likely that the women’s pole vault world record will be broken by Yelena Isinbayeva. She has already broken the world record 27 times, and is basically staggering the progression of the record to maximize prize money.


Mens 4 x 100m Relay

This is a record that gets broken fairly regularly. The Jamaicans have an exceptional team at the moment, containing Bolt, Powell and Blake. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see them shave some time off and go sub 37.00.
