Which female 2012 Olympians have caught your attention outside of women's basketball?

3

I don't follow volleyball closely, but I saw Destinee Hooker play for the first time today (against Brazil, per the link above) and thought she was amazing (and that's not to dismiss the performance of Jordan Larson). Then I looked her up: she apparently averaged 7.3 blocks in high school basketball as well. Her and Larson just seem like an amazing combo that are fun to watch. Anyway, those of us that frequent Swish Appeal are obviously women's basketball fans, but the Olympics give us an opportunity to see many other elite female athletes that we don't normally get a chance to see on television (without cable packages). But outside of women's basketball, which female athletes have caught your eye in the 2012 London Olympics?
