Career highlight: Bronze medal in Hoop final at 2011 World Championships Outlook for Rio: Despite only recently celebrating her 25th birthday, Rivkin will be participating in her third

Olympics in Rio. She finished in 14th place in Beijing eight years ago and seventh in London 2012. A further improvement in Brazil would be a resounding success. She came seventh at last year’s World Championships, and despite missing the recent European Championships in Holon through injury, she is expected to be fully fit for Rio.
