  • Career Highlights: If it weren't the case previously, Willoughby solidified himself as a serious Olympic gold medal contender in London after he won the 2012 BMX world championship in May. At that event, he won all races but his quarterfinal and led from start to finish in the finals to earn his first world championship. That victory earned the 2008 and 2009 junior world champion an automatic Olympic bid. “I’m going to enjoy this one (and) then switch gears and go for that Olympic one,” the Australian said. That world championship victory also was a relief for Willoughby after he finished second in the first three supercross World Cup races this season. Despite his memorable performance at the worlds, Willoughby still should face some stiff competition in London from France's Joris Daudet, who came in second at the worlds, and defending Olympic gold medalist Maris Strombergs of Latvia.
