The triple Olympic medalist, Colombian Mariana Pajón, led her country’s triumph in the Pan American BMX Championship, held this Saturday at the Carlos Ramirez BMX track located in the Parque Recreo Deportivo El Salitre, in Bogota.

The rider from Antioquia was once again the main protagonist and the most followed by the media. And she did not disappoint as she dominated the race from start to finish and added another title to the one she won last year in Santiago del Estero, Argentina.

The “golden girl” (as she has been known since her debut) continues to add gold medals to her rich list of honors and is getting closer and closer to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. Mariana beat in the final event the Americans Lexis Colby and Daleny Vaughn, who won the silver and bronze, respectively.

The Colombian team, led by Fabio Peña, led the Pan American BMX Championship with a total of twelve medals, including four golds, three silvers and five bronzes in the Championship category.

The gold medals in the main categories were won by Nicole Foronda in junior; Manuela Martínez in U-23, Diego Arboleda in Elite and the aforementioned Mariana Pajón in Elite.

The silver medals were won by Mariana Agudelo in junior, Sharid Fayad and Santiago Santa in U-23, while the bronze medals were won by Sara Isabel García and Tomas Palmezano, in junior; Luisa Forero and Juan José López, in U-23, and Santiago Suárez, in Elite.

Colombia led the medal count in the Championship, with the 12 medals won, beating Argentina, second with a gold in the junior category (Thomas Maturano) and a silver, and Ecuador, third overall, with a gold, won by Pedro José Benlcázar Guerrero in the men’s U-23.
