Emma Jackson, Australia. Age at the Olympics: 20

Emma Jackson is part of the Emma-Emma-Emma threesome of Australia and was the most consistent racer in this threesome in 2011, when she finished as the runner-up at the sprint world championships, second at the Hamburg leg of the World Triathlon Series, and fourth at the test event in London. Jackson’s one of the fastest runners in the sport, which bodes well for London’s flat and fast course, but she also has a tendency to miss the front swim pack, and there’s no guarantee that she’s even on the Olympic team right now, given Australia’s depth as a country.
