Key Athletes | US Olympic Women's Track & Field Team 2012: Updated News, Roster and Analysis | Bleacher Report:

Allyson Felix: Felix's profile soared after her controversial tie with Jeneba Tarmoh for the third and final spot on the 100-meter team, but she was already bold-ink news in the track world.
The remarkably versatile sprinter has won consecutive silver medals in the 200-meter dash and hopes to make it gold in London. For the second Olympics in a row she'll enter as the pre-race favorite, this time after running a world-leading 21.69 at U.S. Olympic Trials.
Lolo Jones: The gorgeous, charismatic Jones became a crossover media sensation after divulging to HBO's Real Sports that she's a virgin. The confession turned her into one of London's biggest stars, but it won't likely lead to the podium. Jones barely qualified for the U.S. team and her times this season are well off the medal pace.
