Athlete Spotlight

Isinbayeva, reina de la pérdiga
The 2011 IAAF Athletics season is underway and we wanted to highlight one of the athletes that will undoubtedly star next year at London 2012.

Yelena Isinbeyeva is one of the greats of Athletics and the poster girl for Russia. She competes in the Pole Vault in the Summer Olympic Games and is the double Summer Olympic Games and five times World Athletics Champion at Pole Vault.

She has set 27 world records at the Pole Vault, is the three time IAAF Female Athlete of the Year and double Laureus World Sportswoman of the Year. With her competitive record, charming personality and film star looks, Isinbeyeva will be one to watch in London 2012

Derrick Rose
Derrick Rose is a name that could be on everyone's lips come the London 2012 closing ceremony. The young American Basketball phenomenon is already a household name in the United States, especially after winning the highly prized 2011 NBA Most Valuable Player award. This recent success comes after a meteoric rise to the top in one of the most competitive sports in the world.

Rose plays for his hometown club, the Chicago Bulls, and his journey is a true life story of a local boy who came good. Chicago has a rich Basketball history (ever heard of Michael Jordan?) and Rose could add to that if he steers them to a NBA Eastern Conference Finals victory in the coming week.

However, all eyes will be on him on the international scene in a years time as he tries to add the Olympic Games gold medal to the gold medal he won for the USA at the World Basketball Championships in 2010. On that occasion the USA went the whole tournament unbeaten.

Will Rose light up London's Basketball Arena? Have a look at his profile to find out more about this incredible athlete.
