Aya Medany from Egypt

After making her Olympic debut at the Athens Games in 2004, aged just 15, Aya Medany is now one of the most recognisable sports stars in Egypt. Her sport - the modern pentathlon - demands that she fence, swim, ride horses, run and shoot. Her religious beliefs demand she do it wearing specific clothing. She is the only elite pentathlete who competes wearing a hijab. London 2012 is her third Olympics and she is on a mission to better the eighth position she achieved in Beijing.
