Jordan Burroughs, men's wrestling
Wrestling hasn't given us a lot of athletes with the charisma to end up on a box of Wheaties. But Burroughs just might put the sport in the spotlight. Updating fans on Twitter (his handle is @alliseeigold) about his path to London, he's connected to fans, has endorsement deals, and has plans to go into MMA fighting once he retires from wrestling. Plus, he's a lock to medal -- he hasn't lost a match in three years. Easy to like and a cinch to root for, Burroughs is sure to boost interest in a mostly overlooked Olympic sport.
