Charlotte Worthington of Great Britain has taken out the first ever BMX Freestyle Olympic gold medal, delivering a women’s competition first as she pulled off a backflip 360 on her second attempt.

The three-time world champion from the USA, Hannah Roberts, had looked almost unbeatable after the first run, delivering a well-executed trick filled minute that scored an impressive score of 96.10. Worthington of Great Britain, though, showed that she had the potential to give that score a nudge if all went to plan. She came unstuck in her first run in the finals at the Ariake Urban Sports Park falling as she attempted to deliver a backflip followed with a backflip 360, a trick not seen before in the women’s competition.
