The Youngest Olympic Athletes To Watch This Summer In Rio

by Abigail DiTosto · July 14, 2016

In anticipation of Rio, we have all been eagerly watching the Olympic Trials. With the most recent, and obviously the most loved sport, U.S. Women's Gymnastics, completed, there has been no shortage of talent. We'd like to take a moment to point out that while you're watching (and wondering how it's even remotely possible to throw yourself in the air while flipping and turning) and sitting on your couch, eating chocolate and drinking wine, some of these world-class athletes are most definitely younger than you. It hits you, "what the f*$k have I been doing with my life?!" - these kids are all already the most successful athletes in the world and still under the age of 20. Check out seven of the youngest and best athletes competing in the 2016 Olympics.
