With fans watching from a bridge outside the park

Yep, safe and secure Olympics

I take it you don't get on trains to travel to work in Tokyo Monday to Friday?

The difference between Roberts and the rest of the world: She goes bigger and lands more dynamic moves than anyone else.

US journalist piece per chance? She didn't win the gold. Looks like 'The rest of the world' isn't that bad.

Awesome performances!

And surprised the police let the crowd gather on the bridge!

Nah, I don't do the grind.

But the number of people crammed on that bridge to watch the BMX even made NHK news:

Illegal pro-gatherings are never stopped: Just legal protest gatherings garner that honour .

I wonder if this event will be accused of being 'Tainted', seeing as the US 'Favourite' didn't win?

Maybe the Brit drank some Austrian Redbull before her ride?

Worthington, who crashed on her opening run, got it started by landing the first 360 backflip in women’s competition.

The difference between Roberts and the rest of the world: She goes bigger and lands more dynamic moves than anyone else.

But Roberts hasn't done one of them in competition, then.

The writer really wanted Roberts to win. Great photos though.

The women’s Gold medalist was much more slightly built than the silver medalist, so I was super impressed by the way she took a huge risk going for that big move on her second run after bombing it on the first, and winning the whole thing.

Go big or go home, I guess!
