Medal Winner
Gold Sam Willoughby
Silver Joris Daudet
Bronze Connor Fields

USA Today, meanwhile, has a different choice of winner. For the site, Sam Willoughby (+800) of Australia would be the one to stand on top of the podium. Willoughby is only 24, but he’s already copped a silver medal in the 2012 London Summer Olympics and a pair of golds in the World Championships (2012, 2014).

Also known as the BMX Bandit, Willoughby will be looking to do better this time around than his silver-medal finish back in the 2012 London Olympics.


Medal Winner
Gold Niek Kimmann

For us over here at TopBet, we are putting our money on the favorite, Niek Kimmann. While he failed to defend his title in the BMX World Championships this year, his trophy case is filled with enough hardware for us to deem him our pick to win gold in Rio. As mentioned earlier, Kimmann has a couple of World Championship golds under his belt.
