Top 10 Athletes to watch in Paris 2024 Olympic Games

The Olympic Games have just finished, being held in Tokyo, Japan this time.

The 2020 Olympics should have taken place last year, however, due to the coronavirus pandemic the games were delayed to take place in 2021.

And now, until the next Summer Olympics we have to wait for just three years.

The 2024 games will take place in Paris, as the French capital is getting ready to welcome the best athletes in the world to compete for the desirable medals.

So, as we have quite a bit of time to wait, let's take a look at the Tokyo 2020 athletes, who could shine in Paris 2024.


Tom Daley

Country: Great Britain

Daley has earned quite a name for himself being both a diver and a YouTuber.

The 27-year-old won his first Olympic Gold this summer in a 10 m synchro and also got his second Bronze for 10 m.

The British athlete is quite likely to be in the Great Britain team for the next Olympics in Paris and he'll surely be someone to follow.


Simone Biles

Sport: Artistic Gymnastics

Country: USA


Biles didn't have the best Olympics this summer having won Silver and Bronze and also withdrew from four finals.

However, we all have seen what the 25-year-old can do and surely in Paris 2024, she is expected to shine at her best.


Naomi Osaka

Sport: Tennis

Country: Japan

Osaka didn't meet the expectations in Tokyo 2020, having knocked out from the third round of Women's singles.

However, the four-time Grand Slam champion still has a lot to show and the 2024 Olympics might be his shining time.


Momiji Nishiya

Sport: Skateboarding

Country: Japan


Nishiya made history this summer becoming one of the youngest-ever Olympic Gold medalists.

The 15-year-old skateboarder took home the Gold in the women's street competition — which debuted in Tokyo for the very first time.

Nishiya is still very young and the next Olympic Games will definitely provide her with another round of fame as she's expected to win medals then as well.


Katie Ledecky

Having won two Golds and two Silvers in this summer's Olympics, the 25-year-old Ledecky has added his medals to the USA national team's silverware cabinet.

Ledecky is expected to shine once again next time in the Olympics, considering his yet young age.


Luka Doncic

Sport: Basketball

Country: Slovenia


The NBA superstar was set to shine with Slovenia in Tokyo 2020, however, after an impressive run of games, they lost the bronze medal match vs Australia 107–93.

Doncic was beyond awesome for his country scoring 48 points in a 118–100 victory over Argentina in his Olympic debut.

But the 23-year-old will still have his time to shine for Slovenia at the Olympics as Paris 2024 is in a year.


Yulimar Rojas

Sport: Athletics

Country: Venezuela


Rojas broke the World Record this summer in Tokyo with a 15.67 m triple jump and obviously won the Olympic Gold.

Next time in Paris 2024, the 27-year-old is also expected to shine and proudly represent Venezuela.

Duplantis is another Tokyo 2020 Gold medalist who deserves attention in the upcoming Olympics.
