We here at StyleCaster are completely amped for the 2012 Summer Olympics, which officially commence on July 27 in London. There’s something incredibly special about the Olympics, and it’s not only that it brings together the most skilled and trained athletes in the world — it’s that every single one of them has a personality.
As we watch the Olympics, we get to know each contestant. We begin to pick favorites, pick least favorites and for some of us, begin lifelong obsessions with the athletes. But of course, many are forgotten.
Since we’re gearing up for another few weeks of major competition, we figured we should look back on some of the most iconic athletes who have participated in the Games and see what they were up to now. Click through the gallery above and let us know your favorite former medalist!
