Today's featured olympian is 21-year old Ksenija Balta of Estonia.
Balta competes in the Heptathlon. In case you don't what the Heptathlon is (I sure as heck didn't), it is a combination of scores from 7 different events in Track & Field: 100m Hurtles, High Jump, Shot Put, 200m sprint, Long Jump, Javelin, and the 800m run.
In 2005 she finished with a Bronze medal at the European Junior Championships. Her competitions begin this week.
