As the medals start to pile up for Team GB at the 2021 Tokyo Games young names most people had never heard of are becoming the Olympic stars of tomorrow.

From 21-year-old swimmer Tom Dean to 27-year-old triathlete Georgia Taylor-Brown, even through to 24-year-old American gymnast Simone Biles, who bravely made the decision to pull out of the finals due to concerns for her own mental health. These are bright young sports stars with their whole careers ahead of them, and we can expect to see much more from them in years to come.

When they are ready to retire from competing in international sport the spotlight will beckon in the form of The Great Celebrity Bake Off, Strictly Come Dancing and I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, or even hosting coverage of the Olympic Games one day.

There are so many Olympic medallists that have become household names: James Cracknell, Dame Jessica Enis-Hill, Rebecca Adlington, Ade Adepitan, the list is endless.
