Daniela Ryf has had numerous top-10 and podium finishes on the World Championship Series and World Cup circuits ever since she was the Under-23 world champion in 2008 and seventh in Beijing. She has struggled recently, though, in large part due to a stomach virus she picked up in 2010 in Seoul, where she won the first World Championship Series race of her career, according to her blog. But it looks like she should be on the road to recovery, which could mean she will be a real podium threat in London.
