Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterJuly 18, 2012

The London Games are calling, and we couldn’t be any more excited to see some of the best athletes in the world compete for pride and country.

Of course, some will come away from London bigger and brighter stars than they were going in. People you have never heard of will soon be all you can talk about as the greatest collection of athletes commences its London journey.

Athletes like Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt dominated Beijing, but the question is whether they can do it again.

More than likely, the world will be talking about other athletes who captivated over the frivolity that is the Olympic fortnight.

From swimming to hurdling, we have some thoughts on athletes who will leap from the abyss and claim the spotlight shortly.

There is no end to this discussion. Sound off on your predictions of athletes big and small who will soon become superstars on the biggest stage in the world.
