Kyle Bennett gets inspiration from Michael Phelps
Kyle Bennett from the United States is a medal favorite in the BMX. He said he has gotten inspiration from seeing Michael Phelps in action while watching his events on television before he left for Beijing.
“I’m thankful to be part of it all, thankful to get to the Olympics, and anything from here would be a bonus,” Bennett said Monday. “But just seeing that smile and imagining the feeling he had, it would be amazing to experience that.”
Along with Bennett, Donny Robinson and Mike Day are also favorites.
“Anything can happen,” said Day, the U.S. Olympic trials champion. “I know an American sweep would be awesome to see, but it’s a lot easier said than done. I think everyone will just worry about their own thing, but if that happens, it would be awesome.”
