Ye Shiwen, Olympics Gold Medalist

Ye Shiwen, the 16-year-old Chinese swimmer from Zhejiang, made much more news during the 2012 Summer Olympics for wrong reasons than her incredible achievements of winning gold medals (esp. 200 m and 400 m individual medley) and her world record in the Women's 400m Individual Medley. It was a moment to celebrate when she broke the record set by Stephanie Rice in the 2008 Summer Olympics and a further 3 seconds reduced when she finished with the stopwatch clicking 4:28.43.
