All Alone Rio197
Unlike the Swiss woman who had gone off early in the race, Jenny Rissveds (Sweden) had kept herself in check. She stayed near the front, keeping a close eye on each of the race leaders without putting herself on the front until it mattered. With just a lap and a half to go, she made her move on the Polish rider, Maja Wloszczowska. She quickly distance the eventual Silver Medal winner riding alone to the end of the race and claiming the first Olympic Mountain Biking medal for her country. And it was Gold!
