For years, Gary Young has competed in BMX Park at X Games, and has placed first in qualifying more than once during that tenure. Young always seemed to feel the pressure of landing the first-place spot in qualifying, though he never won a gold medal. That changed in Barcelona. Young rose to the occasion during the finals and won his first gold medal for his efforts.
