Australia’s Logan Martin capped quite a show in BMX freestyle’s Olympic debut, putting together a sterling first run to win gold at the Tokyo Games.
Britain’s Charlotte Worthington started the high-flying act by winning women’s gold, and Martin followed with an equally impressive performance.
The 27-year-old two-time world champion posted a 93.3 in his first ride and watched as the other eight riders failed to catch him. Martin went for a victory lap after the final rider made his second run but cut it short after a hard landing on a jump.
Venezuela’s Daniel Dhers secured silver with a 92.05 on his second run, and Britain’s Declan Brooks had a second-run 90.8 to take bronze.
