BMX is the perfect Olympic sport for those of us crunched for time. NBC's broadcast of the finals took about five minutes, and six medals were awarded in that time. There were also crashes, a dramatic race and a tiny country winning gold, all in five minutes time. What more could you ask for?

America won three of the six medals awarded, the first medals in the new sport of BMX. The U.S. men took two medals, with Mike Day winning silver and Donny Robinson taking home bronze. Maris Stromberg from Latvia won gold. France came in big with Anne-Caroline Chausson won gold and Laetitia le Corguille silver, and American Jill Kintner took bronze. Great Britain's Shanaze Reade had been challenging Chausson for the lead until she crashed on a turn.
