Crewe BMX star makes Olympic team

23 year old named in Team GB

Four-time World Champion Shanaze Reade will compete in the BMX discipline at the summer 2012 London Games.

The 23 year old Crewe athlete will be looking to rectify the disappointment of missing out on a medal when she crashed in the final at Beijing 2008.

But she showed her Olympic medal credentials by winning the test event held at the Olympic Park BMX Track in August 2011.
