(AP Photo/Matt Slocum) What he did in London: Validated his Tour de France title with victory in the Olympic time trial What's next: The biggest challenge for Great Britain's most decorated Olympian may be coping with the media and public appearance demands that will eat into his training time after his incredible summer. "The challenge with a lot of guys who hit a peak, they go through all of that and while everyone else is training really, really hard, they're not," British cycling director Dave Brailsford told road.cc. "Not because they don't want to, it's just difficult to fit it all in." In the longterm future, Wiggins must decide if he's serious about returning to track cycling for the 2016 Rio Games. If so, he'll likely have to leave road cycling for at least a year to focus on the track and prove he's worthy of a spot on a British team that dominated the London Games. What he did in London: Won five medals including golds in the 400 IM and the 4x200 freestyle relay What's next: Even though Lochte, 28, is a year older than Phelps, 27, he has no intention of retiring before the 2016 Rio Games. That doesn't mean that his focus will be solely on swimming the next four years though. Lochte says he wants to appear on Dancing with the Stars and he's open to other TV, media and endorsement opportunities that pop up. "I'm so used to being out there in a Speedo, that being on display is nothing new," Lochte told SI.com recently. "I'm looking forward to all of it."
