Arantxa King (Long jump)
Arantxa King will join fellow long jumper Tyrone Smith in London after receiving a wildcard to compete in the Olympics.
King came agonisingly close to qualifying with a leap of 6.55 metres — her best of the season — which was just .1 metres off the standard required.
The 22-year-old is no stranger to the biggest stage having competed at the Beijing Olympics in 2008, where she too failed to make the finals.
A precocious talent at the youth level, she struck gold at both the World Junior Championships and the Pan Am Juniors in 2005, aged just 15.
The Stanford University student will likely have her work cut out in reaching her event's final but certainly has the pedigree to pull off a shock.
