Career highlight: Bronze medal in 2013 and 2014 World Championships

Outlook for Rio: After losing to Lee Korzits and missing out on the London 2012 Games, Davidovich is back at the Olympics. She finished 10th in Beijing 2008, and despite the disappointment of failing to qualify for London, she bounced back and took two consecutive bronze medals at the Worlds. Davidovich isn’t considered to be a medal candidate in Rio though, only ending the past two global championships in 14th and 19th positions.
