USA's Georgia Gould Wins Bronze In Women's Mountain Biking

Georgia Gould of the United States was in first place after the second and third laps of the mountain biking course at Hadleigh Farm on Saturday, but fell behind in the the fourth lap in women's cross-country. She recovered impressively in her final laps after falling to as far as fifth place, and won the bronze medal at the line.

The winner of the gold medal was 23-year-old Julie Bresset, a young star in cycling but one without any truly major wins in her career to this point. She was in the top three for the entirety of the race and won by a narrow two-second margin. The silver medalist was Sabine Spitz of Germany, a veteran of the Olympic games. Spitz won bronze in 2004 and was the gold medalist in this event at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
