Caroline Buchanan sat silently in the passenger seat next to her fiance, struggling to breathe and hitting the scariest point in her life as she turned to her childhood friend and said.. "Im not ready to die" On the outside she was calm. Silent and focused - just like she is before a BMX race. She stayed like that for 5 hours until she got transferred to the city hospital.
On the inside her body was a mess. A broken nose, broken sternum, two collapsed lungs and dangerous bleeding around her heart.
"I was running on adrenaline. About 30 minutes outside of Canberra the ambulance guy called the hospital and he had a shaky, nervous voice," Buchanan said. "If you're a paramedic you've seen a lot of things and they handle themselves so well. I thought if he's nervous ... that's when I knew it was life-threatening."
The two-time Olympian and eight-time world champion was at a friend's farm when an off-road buggy rolled and caused the injuries. The driver was OK but Buchanan was in debilitating pain and struggling to breathe. She knew something was seriously wrong and that's when she started to fight.
Australian star Caroline Buchanan was pipped by just 0.008 seconds, prompting emotional scenes after the women's final at cycling's BMX world championships. Silver medalist Buchanan charged at race leader Alise Post in the final straight but was beaten in a photo finish by the American fiancee of Australian Olympic medallist Sam Willoughby.
Post's victory set off a wave of emotion in the packed stadium in Rock Hill, South Carolina, as she embraced Willoughby in his wheelchair track side. Willoughby was paralysed in a training accident last September and he and Post plan to marry on New Years Eve this year. Buchanan had cruised through to the final, dominating opponents including reigning world champion Mariana Pajon in the earlier rounds.
Dual Olympian Caroline Buchanan and rising star Kai Sakakibara have claimed the elite titles on a thrilling afternoon of finals at the 2017 BMX Australia National Championships at the Sleeman Sports Centre in Brisbane. Buchanan had the lead from start to finish in the women’s race and win from fellow two-time Olympian Lauren Reynolds and defending Australian champion Leanna Curtis.
The women’s race did not provide as much drama as the men’s event but the performance of Buchanan was just as strong. Both Buchanan and Reynolds missed last year’s national championships as they prepared for the Rio Olympic Games and came to Brisbane this week nervous to race in front of a home crowd, feeling the pressure to perform at the domestic level after missing a year.
