BMX Olympics

The Seattle PI profiles Jill Kintner and her Olympic BMX berth. Jill is from Kirkland Washington, a suburb of Seattle.

BMX is simpler – one kind of bike, one gear, and the terrain is smooth and hard. It’s more about what you can do technically. It’s harder. You have to be smoother.


While BMX ain’t my thing, big props to Jill and taking BMX to the Olympics. It should play very well on TV.


I liked it better when the X-Games were the X-Games and the Olympics were…well, The Olympics!
