Sport: Boxing (men’s light 60kg)
What he’s known for: Carlos Balderas is just shy of 20 years old, and he’s already got a World Series of Boxing gold medal under his belt. He got his start in boxing as a punishment for fighting in the streets and getting suspended from school, so he climbed quite a ladder to make it to the Olympic Games. His next match will be the quarterfinals on Aug. 12.
He has no Instagram, so you actually have to watch his match, but you won’t be complaining.
