What started as a way to burn off a 7-year-old’s pent up energy has turned into a lifelong passion for United States BMX star Connor Fields. When BMX racing was first introduced as an Olympic sport at the 2008 Beijing Games, Fields made a commitment to himself that he would one day shine on the world’s biggest stage. He spent much of his time training on the Olympic-sized BMX track at the Chula Vista Olympic Training Center near San Diego, California. Just four years later, Fields turned his Olympic dream into reality. After a disappointing seventh place finish in London, Fields hopes to give his story a fairytale ending in Rio.
