For Alex, getting to the Olympics will be the fulfillment of a dream against all odds. First arriving at a BMX track with his father as a shy kid looking to make friends in a new place, he has overcome many hurdles. These include the perceived limits of his small physique, a severe lack of suitable facilities and funding, as well as injury issues and the pressures of having to work a 9-5 job to rise to champion of South Africa. Now, four years after the heartbreak of Rio, Alex is set to finally live his dream in Tokyo.

Achievements:

         Top-ranked South African, UCI BMX Elite ranking

         2x South Africa BMX elite national champion

         South Africa BMX National Age Group Series champion 2017-2019

         National team, UCI BMX World Championships 2019

         2x silver medalist, African Continental Championships

         Finalist, 2014 Youth Olympic Games

BMX has taught me to be happy with what I have. I look beyond what I got given and do what I can with what I have.
