BMX racing made its debut in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic games, and the U.S. team proved its power player status, taking home half of the medals awarded. In the final race, Mike Day and Donny Robinson stayed in control, biking their way to silver and bronze medals respectively. Jill Kintner was at the bottom of the pack for most of the final but raced her way to the head of the class in the end, clinching a bronze.
