    Do people consider 2018 the year Samba emerged? If so, be sure to go back and check the final in London 2017. I feel like people forget.

    Taoufik Makhloufi was someone who most hadn't thought much about prior to his dominating Olympic performance in 2012. Then he manages two silvers in 2016, losing in his signature event only to someone who ran for a suspicious coach at the time.
