Paola Espinosa, Diver (Mexico)
The petite 5'1" Espinosa, 25, is a two-time Olympian, winning bronze in Beijing in 2008. She's been Mexican national champion in the 10-meter platform for nine years running.
TRAINING SCHEDULE: I train Monday through Saturday, seven to eight hours per day. On a normal day, I wake up at 8 a.m., eat a light breakfast of fruit or cereal, and then head to the gym from 9 a.m. to noon to do dry training (lots of work with weights, core exercises, practicing gymnastics). We go to the pool for a diving session from 12 to 2 p.m. Then there's lunch and a rest break until 4 p.m., when it's back to training until 7:30 or 8 p.m.
SMART SNACKS: Herbalife smoothies are a staple for me.
GUILTY PLEASURE: My favorite is potatoes with chili peppers.
GAME DAY ROUTINE: I don't wear any makeup when I'm competing. When I'm diving, I tie my hair back into a ponytail or a bun.
OFF-DUTY ESSENTIALS: I love to put on makeup, but I like it to look natural. My go-to makeup products are mostly from MACespecially its face and body foundation and Lipglass. And I can't live without Bobbi Brown mascara.
SKIN SAVIORS: Vasenol body lotion is key because my skin is exposed all the time and gets so dry from hours of training in a chlorinated pool.
PERFUME PICK-ME-UP: CH by Carolina Herrera.
NECESSARY INDULGENCE: Baths with rose water. HAIR RX: When I go out, I wear my hair down and either straighten it or wear extensions. My hair tends to do what it wants, but I like it when it's frizz-free and shiny. Using the Pantene 3-Minute Miracle Treatment at night helps make it more manageable.
