STORY SCRIPT:

Mixed BMX Freestyle Park made an Olympic debut to remember as the Argentinian pair of Agustina Roth and Iñaki Iriartes shared the gold with Germany’s Lara Lessmann and Evan Brandes on day five at Buenos Aires 2018.

Japan’s Kanami Tanno and Yuma Oshimo collected the bronze on a cloudy but action-packed afternoon at the Urban Park in Puerto Madero.

The day’s action began with the women’s final, which saw Roth score 74 points on the best of her three runs, a score only bettered by Lessmann’s 83.66. That performance earned the German pair 15 team points, with the Argentinians picking up five points fewer.

Roth was trackside for the men’s final and saw Iriartes reverse the result of Wednesday’s qualification round by scoring 83.33 points with his best run to Brandes’s 82, thanks to some spectacular tricks. The Argentinian rider celebrated his 15 points and a share of the gold in exuberant style, taking his shirt off and throwing into the crowd.
