Brooke Crain is a 23-year-old BMX cyclist from Visalia, California, and she will be making her second Olympic appearance in Rio. Crain was able to qualify for the Olympics due to her standing in the Union Cycliste Internationale Women’s Elite rankings. The U.S. sends their top two BMX cyclists to Rio, and Craine’s 1,130 points were seventh in the world and second only to Alise Post in America.
The Mt. Whitney High School grad is hoping that the second time will be the charm when it comes to bringing home some Olympic hardware. In 2012, Brooke Crain was originally an Olympic alternate, but she ended up competing in London as a last minute replacement after Arielle Martin suffered an injury during a training run. Crain crashed in her qualifying run and finished in eighth place in the final event.
