If you don’t yet have a favorite athlete at the 2012 Summer Olympics, you do now. Her name is Ivet Lalova, she’s 28 years old, and she’s a sprinter from Bulgaria.
Why is she your favorite athlete at these Olympics? Because she’s incredibly talented and has worked hard her whole life to make it to the Olympics, of course.
Oh, and also because her pre-race warmup routine makes Michelle Janneke look like a nun.
Just have a look:

This was Ivet Lalova warming up before a preliminary heat of the 60m sprint at the IAFF 2012 Indoor Track Championships in Istanbul back in March. She didn’t end up winning a medal there, but she will be competing for Bulgaria in both the 100m and the 200m events at the 2012 Olympics in London.
Not bad at all, huh? Her official Olympic bio lists her occupation as “student,” but it certainly appears as though she may have some interesting hobbies on the side.
In any case, if you want to set your DVRs accordingly, the women’s 100m begins Friday and concludes Saturday, while the women’s 200m starts next Monday and finishes next Wednesday.
