    Jason Richardson (Carlsbad, Calif.) scored the U.S. National Team’s third medal at the XV Pan American Games with a victory in the men’s BMX competition on July 15. The 33-year-old Richardson made his way to the eight-man main where he lined up in the start gate with Jonathan Suarez (VEN), Jose Primera (VEN), Herrera A. Castro (COL), Caicedo A. Jimenez (COL), Mauro Aquino (BRA), Cristian Becerine (ARG), and Ramiro Marino (ARG). Although the American wasn’t a favorite to win the final run, he took advantage of an amazing start to grasp the lead in the first turn and hold off his rivals until the end. Suarez and Primera followed him in second and third respectively. In the women’s event, reigning USA Cycling BMX National Champion Krystal Hime (San Antonio, Texas) narrowly missed out on a fourth cycling medal for the U.S. In the eight-woman main, she joined compatriot Rachel Smith (Gahanna, Ohio), who along with Hime, is responsible for the U.S. being ranked third in the world in women’s BMX racing. In the final, Hime finished fourth and Smith seventh. The gold medal was won by Argentina’s Gabriela Diaz.
