Old Bag Bets 5 Bucks On Her Grandson To Win An Olympic Medal In Artistic Gymnatics at 200-1….Bookie Refuses To Pay
Thisiskent – A GRANDMOTHER from Ramsgate placed a £5 bet that her grandson would win a medal at the Olympics, but when he bagged an historic bronze for Team GB bookies refused to cough up. Linda Aldred, 66, made the 200-1 bet shortly before the opening ceremony, that Olympic Gymnast Sam Oldham, 19, from Nottingham would win the medal for men’s artistic gymnastics. Despite the outside odds, Sam and his team went on to make Olympic history by getting a British team its first medal in men’s artistic gymnastics in 100 years. Linda said: “I went back to the shop and I asked if my bet was finished and they said it was and the bet was void as Sam had won the medal as part of a team not as an individual. Now Linda has taken her complaint up with The Independent Betting Adjudication Service (IBAS). Whatever the outcome Linda says she is not worried about the money. She said: “I am really happy Sam won, it is more the principle than the money, but I could have used the winnings to pay for my ticket to see Sam at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.”
Get a load of this wiley old bitch. Acting like she meant the team completion when she placed this bet. What’s that old expression? Don’t con a con artist. Well I certainly think that applies here. This bag knew exactly what she was doing. She knew this bet was for the individual portion of the Artistic Gymnastics competition. She trying to cash in on a technicality. Hey I ain’t mad at her. I’d fight for it too. I can’t even tell you how many times I fought with my bookie over something I knew I was flat wrong about. My personal favorite is trying to dispute If Win bets when the first team pushes. Bottomline is you need every break you can get when gambling. But I’m just not buying her “ah shawks” persona. This bitch has degenerate written all over her. And if she doesn’t care about the money why is she issuing a formal complaint with the IBAS? Lady probably isn’t even related to the kid who won.
