127. Georgia Gould, cycling

A dominant competitor with an unparalleled work ethic, she's a three-time mountain bike national champion who hopes to compete in this year's Olympics in London. Gould, 32, grew up in Baltimore, attended Roland Park Country and turned to off-road racing only in 2004. Four years later, in Beijing, she placed eighth in the grueling cross-country mountain bike event.
