Hire Beth Shriever
Beth Shriever made history by winning BMX gold for Team GB at Tokyo Olympics 2020. In 2021 she became the first British BMX racing cyclist in history to win both the Olympic and World titles in the same year. Beth went unbeaten through her three semi runs and crossed the line just 0.090 seconds ahead of Colombia’s Marian Pajon to be crowned Olympic champion in the final.
Teammate Kye Whyte had won Britain’s first ever Olympic BMX medal with silver, but 11 minutes later he cheered Beth Shriever on to a fantastic gold; before hoisting her high in celebration.
Previously, when Beth was asked what drives her to compete, she responded with ‘the Olympics’. Her journey to Tokyo 2020 began at just nine-years-old, when she was invited down to Braintree BMX club. And the rest is history.
Winning the world junior BMX championships in 2017, Beth moved into the senior ranks, with her eyes firmly set upon the Olympic games.
Following UK Sport’s review into funding after Rio 2016, Beth was uncertain that she would be able to achieve her dream. But with her selection confirmed, she harboured gold medal ambitions.
