Emma Moffatt, Australia. Age at the Olympics: 27

Two-time world champion and 2008 Beijing bronze medalist Emma Moffatt hasn’t been the most consistent racer of late, but she proved last year that she can still win big when she got on the top of the podium at the Hamburg leg of the World Triathlon Series. If she gets back to the form she was in in 2009—when she won three World Triathlon Series events, Hy-Vee, and the Grand Final—she will be tough to beat. And now that she’s working with coach Craig Walton again, it’s entirely possible that she’ll get back to that form when London rolls around. That she knows what it takes to perform well at the Olympics means that she shouldn’t be counted out.
