The Dutch pretender
European Athlete of the Year in 2014 and 2015, Dafne Schippers looks set to be one of the stars of the Rio Games.
The 24-year-old Dutchwoman enjoyed a stellar 2015, storming to 200m world championship gold in a European record of 21.63 seconds, the third-fastest time in history. She also took 100m silver in 10.81 seconds, a national record.
Schippers began her career as a heptathlete, winning the world junior title in 2010. After coming 12th at the London Olympics, she claimed bronze at the 2013 worlds.
Now though, the flying Dutchwoman has her eyes on a bigger prize: the sprint double. She'll be looking to upset the favourites - Allyson Felix of the United States and Jamaica's Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce.
