It's kind of hard to fathom this one, but an elderly British woman got stiffed at the window on her Olympics futures bet.
According to the story in thisisKent.co.uk, Linda Aldred placed a small bet at Betfred that her grandson Sam Oldham would win a medal in his sport of gymnastics.
"Before the Games started, Linda Aldred placed a small bet at 200/1 that Sam would win a medal in London. When he and his British teammates took home the bronze in the team competition, Aldred thought her £5 (about $8) ticket was a big winner.
But upon trying to cash out the ticket for £1,000, Aldred was told her bet was void because the medal was won in a team competition, not individual."
The grandmother is milking it a little, saying she could have used the winnings for a ticket to Rio to see Sam compete in 2016. But the story shows the ticket doesn't clearly state that Oldham needed to win an individual medal.
The issue has been taken up with the Independent Betting Adjudication Service (IBAS), who handles claims like this one. They said they've handled a number of wager complaints from the Olympic Games in London.
