Sarah Haskins, United States. Age at the Olympics: 31

Like the U.S.’s Laura Bennett, Sarah Haskins is not yet on the Olympic team. If she does make the Olympic team over Bennett, like Bennett, Haskins is a contender for a medal. Haskins’ best shot for this is if she hammers the swim and gets into a break with athletes with similar strengths, such as Helen Jenkins of Great Britain and American teammate Sarah Groff. This is how she won silver at the world championships in Vancouver in 2008, after all.
