The Iron Lady gunning for gold
4th in the 400m medley at the London Olympics, in spite of leading for part of the race, Katinka Hosszu will be out for revenge in Rio.
The 27-year-old Hungarian has learned from her mistakes, and recovered from something close to depression after the disappointment of London.
Since 2012, the "Iron Lady" has dominated the world and European championships, both short and long course, racking up medals and world records in the medley, as well as freestyle, backstroke and butterfly.
With 11 world championship titles and 23 European titles to her name, Hosszu is now chasing the only thing missing from her phenomenal collection: Olympic gold.
