None of the women in the field could stop Colombian Mariana Pajón in Rio. “The Queen of BMX” won all four races on Friday to take home her second-straight gold medal in women’s BMX.
Team USA’s Alise Post had a fast final run, but couldn’t catch up to Pajón in the final stretch. Post takes home the silver already improving on Team USA’s BMX showing in London when they didn’t get on the podium.
Venezuela’s Stefany Hernandez came in behind Post to pick up the bronze.
Brooke Crain, Post’s Team USA teammate, finished just behind Hernandez to finish in 4th.
