Charlotte Worthington wins historic gold to complete Britain’s BMX domination

Great Britain’s BMX brilliance continued on Sunday with two more medals as Charlotte Worthington made history twice over to become the first Olympic women’s freestyle champion.

The 25-year-old was the first woman to land a 360 backflip in competition, part of a breathtaking routine that earned a mark of 97.50 and gold in a discipline making its Olympic debut.

Worthington had hinted she was working on something special at Adrenaline Alley, the huge BMX complex in Corby where the team trains, but few knew it was the ground-breaking 360 until Sunday’s final.

“It was definitely a gamble and it’s amazing when gambles pay off,” she said. “I’ve probably been working on it a few months. I keep my cards close to my chest because it definitely pays off in these situations.”
