Brooke Crain was first introduced to BMX racing as a six year old watching her brother race. While she shied away from getting involved with the sport at first, she soon found it irresistible and joined her brother on the track. At 16, Crain made a name for herself by winning two world titles and a national title. After finishing eighth at the London Olympics, Crain has high hopes for redemption in Rio. She trained at the BMX track on the site of the Chula Vista Olympic Training Center near San Diego, California.
