Biography

Mariana PAJON

The greatest BMX rider of a generation, Mariana Pajón has barely tasted defeat on the path from winning her first world title in 2010 to her second Olympic gold at Rio 2016.

Natural talent

“In 2000, when I was nine, I used to do gymnastics, not BMX, and I thought that I’d go to the Games as a gymnast,” said Colombian BMX rider Mariana Pajón. “I dreamed about moments like that. I felt so proud and I really wanted to go to the Olympic Games.”

Born on 10 October 1991 in Medellin, Pajón first sat on a bike at the age of four. Prompted by her father and brother, both BMX riders, she soon devoted herself to the sport and quickly proved to be a natural, winning race after race.
