15. David Oliver
Age 30, 1 Bronze Medal
While his physique seems to get most of the attention, Oliver’s résumé as a hurdler—and all-around athlete—is certainly impressive on its own. he’s the American record holder in the 110-meter hurdles and a two-time NCAA All-American in track and field at Howard University, where he somehow found time to play wide receiver on the football team. most recently, he won bronze in the 60-meter hurdles at the 2010 world indoor championships, but it’s his bronze medal from the 110-meter hurdles in Beijing that has this favorite hungry for gold.
