8. Fu Yuanhui. China, swimming


Recommended Posts

After making a name for herself at the Rio Olympics through her candid-yet-unorthodox demeanor, Fu Yuanhui had a humble 2017 in the pool, narrowly missing the 50m backstroke title by a one-hundreth of a second and failing to making the 100m final at the FINA World Championships in Budapest. Fu, 22, and 89th on the World Fame 100, became an internet sensation in Rio by speaking her mind on TV interviews and blurting out phrases that raised many eyebrows. Fans loved her for keeping it real, a defiant counter to the age-old stoical image of Chinese athletes in front of the world. -- Kevin Wang
