Lauren Reynolds

World number five Lauren Reynolds secured one of Australia’s two female BMX places at the 2012 London Olympic Games alongside world number two Caroline Buchanan. Having collected a bronze medal at the Olympic Test Event, Reynolds returned to London and was ranked ninth after the seeding run at the Olympics. This saw her face tougher heats and gates for the ensuing rounds. Reynolds sat precariously on the edge of a finals berth when she was bumped in her third head-to-head race and crashed out. Reynolds finished 15th overall.
