Weirdest Pan Am Games story of the day

Mariana Pajon Londono, the reigning Olympic and Pan Am women's BMX champion, came into Toronto as the heavy favourite.

The Columbian easily sailed through the early rounds and looked on track to win gold. However, by the end of the final there was a new Pan Am champion.

Going into one of the turns, the Queen of BMX fell hard. EMS was called to the track, but she eventually got up and finished the race.

Officially, Londono received a DNF. But she scores unofficial points for her grit.
