Name: Alfredo Campo Number in Rio: 593 Country: Ecuador Result: Last
When was the point for you that you thought you had a good chance of going to the 2016 Olympics in Rio? Alfredo Campo: It was always a dream of mine! Midway 2015 after Pan-Am games I tought I had a good shot of making it!
Can you explain what kind of sacrifices you have to make as a professional BMX racer to be on top of your game all the time? Alfredo Campo: Leaving home being 16 years old was for sure one of the hardest things, but I love challenges that's why bmx has been so unique for me, not having a solid national team and having to do things by my own like making a financial plan is also a tough piece of the puzzle
How important has your coach been on your road to Rio? Alfredo Campo: Main key, a mentor, a journey I will never forget alongside Anders Grounsund
Name: Niek Kimmann Country: The Netherlands Number in Rio: 313 Result: 7th
How did Rio turn out for you as an Olympic rookie looking back at the race now? Niek Kimmann: The level of the top guys in BMX is so high that I knew I could easily go out in the semi with some bad luck, or maybe even medal if everything fell in the right place.
Name: Kyle Dodd Number in Rio: 216 Country: South Africa Result: If I'm not mistaken I finished 18th
"The important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win, but to take part; the important thing in Life is not triumph, but the struggle; the essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."
Name: Tory Nyhaug Country: Canada Number in Rio: 49 Result: 5th
How did Rio turn out for you looking back at the race now? Tory Nyhaug: Happy with how I battled and competed right until the end. I did the best I could every lap regardless of anything, kept the mood light and just kept telling myself no matter what just do the best you can and be proud of yourself no matter what. Starts were off for racing so I had to compensate and race in other ways, but overall very proud.
So close to a medal. Do you re-watch the final on a regular basis? Tory Nyhaug: Yeah of course, painfully close. No I don’t watch it on a regular basis, I tortured myself with it for a bit then said
