Top Olympic Athletes to Watch at the 2024 Paris Games

The 2024 Olympic Games are still more than one month away, and plenty of top-tier athletes have qualified for Team USA. Some of the most recognized American athletes in the world, including many from previous Olympic Games, haven’t technically qualified yet, but despite that we expect to see the likes of superstars like Simone Biles, Caeleb Dressel, Suni Lee, Katie Ledecky and Sha’Carri Richardson among the field.

Here are a few key U.S. athletes to watch this time around:

Simone Biles, Gymnastics: Simone Biles is one of the most recognizable names in both gymnastics and the Olympic Games. Making her debut in 2016 in Rio, Biles has earned a total of 29 gold medals in her career, including a four-gold-medal tally at the Olympics, making her the most decorated gymnast of all time — and she’ll be back at it again this year. Famously, she withdrew from the last Olympics in Tokyo, paving the way to all-around women’s gold for…

Suni Lee, Gymnastics: When Biles stepped out of the Tokyo Games, Suni Lee was there to help Team USA secure the all-around gold. Lee will be back in action at the Paris Games and will definitely be one to keep an eye on.

Sha’Carri Richardson, Track & Field: Sha’Carri Richardson was devastatingly excluded from the U.S. Olympic Team at the Tokyo Games after failing a marijuana test, but she’ll be back on the track this year. Richardson has clocked in at a personal best record of 10.72 seconds in the 100-meter dash and is considered the sixth-fastest woman of all time.

Noah Lyles, Track & Field: Noah Lyles has a personal best of 9.83 seconds in the 100-meter dash and has been ranked first in the world for both the 100- and 200-meter dash. He’s also the third-fastest of all time in the 200-meter dash. In Paris, he’ll aim to take home four gold medals — a feat even the legendary Usain Bolt did not achieve.

Katie Ledecky, Swimming: When it comes to swimming, Katie Ledecky’s name is right up there with the great Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympic swimmer ever. She holds seven Olympic gold medals and 21 world championship medals, making her the most decorated female swimmer in history. She’s also broken 16 records over the course of her swimming career. Look for Ledecky in the swim lanes in Paris.

Caeleb Dressel, Swimming: Speaking of seven-time Olympic gold medalist swimmers, Caeleb Dressel will represent from the men’s side in Paris. He’s the first male swimmer to win gold medals in the 50- and 100-meter freestyles and the 100-meter butterfly over the course of a single Olympics.

U.S. Men’s Basketball Team: Lebron James, Anthony Davis, Joel Embiid, Stephen Curry, Bam Adebayo, Kevin Durant, Tyrese Halliburton, Kawhi Leonard, Jayson Tatum and other stars from NBA will all be playing for Team USA in basketball. This is an all-star lineup of NBA powerhouses that you will definitely not want to miss on the court.

Scottie Scheffler, Golf: The world’s number one ranked golfer will be on the links and greens in Paris, aiming to bring home a gold medal to hang up alongside his green Master’s jacket and other golf accolades.

Coco Gauff, Tennis: Coco Gauff, who beat the legendary Venus Williams at Wimbledon at the age of 15, will be representing Team USA on the Olympic tennis courts. Gauff has been a fixture on the WTA rankings, reaching as high as third in singles and first in doubles.

Brady Ellison, Archery: One of the most recognized names in archery, Brady Ellison will be on the range again at Paris 2024, where he’ll take aim at his first gold medal. He’s an Olympic veteran who has earned three Olympic medals and is known for his long reign as the world’s top-ranked recurve archer, which he held from August 2011 until April 2013.
