    I remember Yohan Blake being a beast with the braids.. he was probably doping.

    I remember this Canadian dude being the heir to Usain Bolt.. He looked very average

    Unless you're a household name, I feel like these Olympics have been lacking star power, through no fault of the individual athletes.

    Aside from Ledecky and Biles, I can't remember the last time another female athlete from the U.S. had a headline, going into their events. Sunisa Lee only did so because she won.

    I don't think it's a gender thing, since Dressel kinda came outta nowhere, to win his swimming medals. Don't really remember the media covering Dressel extensively, the way they covered Phelps.

    She used to be a heptathlete but is a really really good world-class 60m hurdler.

    She is. She was a heptathlete before switching to hurdles.
    See Dr. of Dunk beat me to it.

    Here's a track pic of her.
