The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games are already history and like Rio 2016, this year could be the last time we saw some of the great figures of the United States, this because the youngest are for the relay and be the heirs of the medalists.
It is difficult to forecast who will arrive and who will not by Paris 2024, however, what is a reality is that it is unlikely to see Allyson Felix again In three years, Simone Biles mastered artistic gymnastics again, and there are many promising young women who began to shine from Tokyo.
The athletes who could be figures in Paris
Sunisa Lee (19 years-Artistic Gymnastics)
We do not know what will happen in three years with Simone Biles, but everything indicates that Sunisa Lee, who just participated in Tokyo at the age of 19, will be the heir as the new star of the United States in artistic gymnastics. In three years, Biles will be 27 and the future is bleak, so Lee would be the new figure, at least it seems so. We can’t rule out Jade Carey either.
Sha’Carri Richardson (21 years-Athletics)
After being left out of the Tokyo Olympics, Sha’Carri Richardson, who Just 21 years old, she knows that Paris 2024 may be her chance to make history. Currently his best time is 10.72 seconds., time that would have given him the silver medal.
Sidney McLaughlin (age 22-Athletics)
Sidney McLaughlin won two gold medals at just 22 years old and is currently number one in the 400m hurdles. If he stays at 25, he could easily get to endorse his degree in Paris.
Hannah Roberts (19 years-BMX Cycling)
At 19 years of age, Hannah Roberts took the silver medal in the free BMX modality. He will still be too young to be able to return to Paris and seek to repeat the medal or why not even dream of conquering gold.
Nevin Harrison (19 years Speed Boating)
Harrison was a pleasant surprise in the United States Sprint Canoeing. He won a gold medal when he was just 19 years old. It would not be a surprise if he returns for the Paris 2024 joust and repeats the feat.
Katie Grimes (15 years-Swimming)
Swimming is undoubtedly one of the sports that dominates the United States, and swimmer Katie Grimes could be the next figure. He already had experience at 15 in Tokyo, so Paris could be his Games.
Robert Finke (21 years-Swimming)
At 21 years old, no one expected Robert Finke to stand out at Tokyo 2020However, despite this, he won two gold medals in the 800 meters freestyle and in the 1500 freestyle. Paris 2024 could be his consecration.
Regan Smith (19 years-Swimming)
Another of the swimmers to take into account is Regan Smith, at just 19 years old she was surpassed by the Australians in Tokyo, but if he stays, he will again seek to fight in Paris 2024.
Anastasija Zolotic (18 years-Taekwondo)
Another pleasant surprise for the United States was Anastasija Zolotic. The only 18-year-old girl won the gold medal in Tokyo. He is going to continue very young and in a still sweet moment to seek to repeat it in Paris.
Erriyon Knighton (17 years-Athletics)
We could face the new figure of Athletics. Trayvon Bromell disappointed as a favorite, but Knighton in his first Games finished fourth in the 200-meter dash. He has similar times to Usain Bolt as a young man, so Knighton will be someone to watch.
