olympic athlete celebrity look alike

The Olympics have a way of radically transforming the lives of athletes. One month a 17-year swimmer can walk down the street and nobody knows who she is. The next she’s a bona fide celebrity appearing on cereal boxes and doing interviews on the Today Show.

Of course, not every Olympian needs success at the Games to make them feel like a celebrity. Some of them feel like celebrities every time they look in the mirror—because they already have celebrity doppelgängers.

And that’s the list we have for you today: 15 athletes from the 2012 Summer Olympics who have celebrity look-alikes. Some are more uncanny than others, but there’s a definite resemblance with each pair. So, you know, take a look.
