Schmidt is considered as one of the hottest athletes, right now. The 21-year-old has been shining at junior level and first came to prominence by helping Germany take silver in 4×400 relay at 2017’s European Athletics Under-20 Championships.
Tokyo 2020 will be Osaka’s first Olympic Games and she’ll be playing in her home country, looking to become the first Japanese woman to take home an Olympic medal in tennis.
