Outlook for Rio: Cohen enters her first Olympics on the back of an excellent season. She scaled the podium in three different Grand Prix events while taking a gold medal at the Grand Slam competition in Baku, Azerbaijan in May. That saw her climb into the top 10 in the world rankings and she could make some noise in Rio if everything falls into place.
