Many will be young up and coming athletes who will develop between now and Tokyo 2020, whilst others will be made up of Paralympic and world medallists. All are set to be in action this year in either World or regional Championships.
Ones to Watch athletes will be revealed in two sports each day between 9-19 January, starting on Monday with wheelchair rugby and archery.
