Watch Aussie BMX Star Caroline Buchanan Tonight!
If you’ve been staying up every night watching the Games make sure you tune in tonight for Aussie’s Caroline Buchanan first heat in the Women’s BMX approx starting at 12:00 pm EST on Chanel 9.
We are excited to see No. 2 ranked in the world and the reigning world time trial BMX champion, Caroline Buchanan compete for her dream result. Buchanan is an undisputed favourite, along with Oakley’s Sam Willoughby who’s confident to land Australia’s first medal in the discipline.
Buchanan was too young to compete when the sport was added to the Olympic schedule four years ago.
Since then she’s had a burning desire to reach her goal of racing for Australia in London.
‘’I like pressure,’’ Buchanan said. ‘’Diamonds are made under pressure and I definitely enjoy it.
’’I think most of the pressure is going to be on the local girl, so I’m just going to enjoy it.
‘’Winning the time trial [world championship] was good for me, I know over the four international races we’ve had this year, I’ve been the fastest by the clock on every single trap.
‘’So I’m just focusing on consistency and that’s one of the big keys coming into an Olympics.’’
Whatever the case tonight we are all very proud to have Caroline representing Australia and I’m sure we will see her in the Final August 10th.
