Jill Kintner- BMX Racing
"The easy short answer is obviously BMX! I can't wait to see people I know well in a sport experience taking home some medals: Arielle Martin, Alise Post, Nic Long, David Herman, Connor Fields! Beyond that, I think the sports I follow, or know something about the athletes are: track and field, gymnastics, tennis, basketball. I like really technical events that move with speed. USA all the way!"
Jill Kintner is one of the most dominant female cyclists in the world—and in multiple disciplines, too. She’s won every possible title in 4X mountain biking and every major title in BMX. Kintner began racing BMX in 1989 at the age of eight, turned pro at age 16, went into pro mountain bike racing in 2002 at 21, and now competes in both sports internationally. After a five-year focus on mountain biking, Kintner returned to BMX to attempt to qualify for the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team. Jill became the only woman to represent the United States as part of the Beijing BMX Team and earned the bronze medal.
