Emma Moffatt, Australia
The bronze medalist at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Emma Moffatt lived somewhat in the shadow of fellow Aussie and Beijing gold medalist Emma Snowsill until she tore up the ITU’s Dextro Energy World Championship Series in 2009 by winning four of the five races she entered, including the Grand Final. That earned her her first overall World Championship Series title, and she backed it up by winning it again last year. Moffatt has struggled a bit so far this season, but she had a breakthrough race in Hamburg, where she won by pulling away from Snowsill and Australia’s Emma Jackson near the end of the run. She is certainly a podium threat for London.
