This six-time U.S. national champion (and Internet entrepreneur — she’s a personal coach) has spent 12 years as a bike racer. The Kentucky native will be racing for the gold in London. She serves as a mentor of young female athletes while also maintaining her commitment to the planet. Bausch says she’s committed to recycling and “encouraging others to do the same.”
