Drew Ginn, 37, Australia: three-time gold medalist coxless. His first Olympic gold was won in 1996, and he planned to return in 2000 but a back injury kept him out of the boat. Following two consecutive gold medal titles in Athens in 2004 and in Beijing in 2008, he decided to dabble with cycling but he'll be back in the water this year. - #cycling #london2012 #olympics
