The first US team member to win their medal was Jill Kintner. On Friday, August 22, Kintner earned the bronze medal in Womenâ€™s BMX, finishing after Anne-Caroline Chausson and Laetitia Le Corguille of France. Kintner, a 26 year old from Seattle, had been competing as a mountain bike rider and returned to BMX racing when the opportunity to be on the US Olympic team came up. Kintner rode across the finish line with the words â€œ4 dadâ€ written on her gloves in honor of her late father, Peter, who passed away a year and a half earlier. Kintnerâ€™s father had operated a local BMX track when she and her brothers were kids. Kintner rides for GT Bikes.
