Charlotte Worthington: History-making British BMX freestyler eyes Olympic success

“You get a rush when you do something dangerous and pull it off,” admits livewire British BMX rider Charlotte Worthington. “That buzz, it’s addictive!”

The Olympics are changing, with new ‘urban’ sports like freestyle BMX – as well as skateboarding and 3v3 basketball – being introduced to future Games, beginning with Tokyo 2020.

“Riders push themselves to the limit, take massive risks and pull off tricks you just don’t think could be possible, so people are going to love watching it,” she adds.

Last month Worthington became the sport’s first ever European champion and as such the 23-year-old former chef arguably represents one of GB’s best Olympic medal hopes in the new ‘youthful’ sports.
