10. Darvin Edwards (St. Lucia, Men’s High Jump)
Darvin Edwards, the Olympic-bound high jumper from St. Lucia, suffered a major injury in 2009 that had folks wondering if he would be able to continue his career. After setting St. Lucia’s record for height before he even turned 20, Edwards injured his back and was left with a lengthy recovery period.
