Great Britain’s Charlotte Worthington won the first-ever gold medal in BMX freestyle on Sunday.

Worthington sealed the win when she became the first woman to land a 360-degree backflip in competition. The risky trick earned Worthington a podium-topping score of 97.50.

“It was definitely a gamble, and it’s amazing when gambles pay off,” she said afterward.

American Hannah Roberts followed close behind Worthington, capturing the silver medal in a thrilling BMX final.
