Meet Pauline Ferrand-Prevot. The lovely and talented 29-year old French cyclist will be competing in Tokyo, and she comes with a fairly impressive resume.
Pauline Ferrand-Prévot (born 10 February 1992) is a French multi-discipline bicycle racer, who currently rides for UCI Elite Mountain Bike team Absolute–Absalon–BMC in cross-country cycling. Ferrand-Prévot has also competed in road bicycle racing and cyclo-cross during her career, winning the world title in each discipline. During the 2015 season, aged just 23, she became the first person ever – in the history of cycling – to simultaneously hold the World road title, World cyclo-cross title and World cross-country mountain bike title.
Ferrand-Prévot is a six-time elite world champion and a thirteen-time elite national champion across the various disciplines in which she competes. She was the youngest competitor in the Women’s road race at the 2012 Summer Olympics, in which she finished eighth.
