Australia’s Logan Martin has finished second overall on the 2019 BMX Freestyle Park World Cup Series after its third and final round in Chengdu, China over the weekend.
The 25-year old is among Australia’s freestyle elite who are looking to qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, and Martin is continuing to build steam with his most recent success in China adding to his resume.
The finals in Chengdu were called off due to bad weather, which meant that their qualifying results in the semis would be their final score. For Martin, his fourth place would have him remain in second place on the overall standings.
Qualified in 4th today heading into finals tomorrow! Here’s my first run! Feeling good on the course so I’m excited to step it up and throw down tomorrow with the boys!😈

Finishing first was Japan’s Rimu Nakamura on 26,200 points. Martin recorded 24,100 points and USA’s Justin Dowell finished third on 23,400.
While disappointed he couldn’t compete for the top spot on the series standings, Martin is more motivated than ever, and timing is perfect with the world championships set to commence this weekend at the same venue.
Unfortunately the rain got us today and the finals got called off. Which means they go off the results from semis…
While Logan finished second on the overall series standings, he wasn’t the only Australian to etch his name in the books.
Flying the Aussie flag solo in the women’s category was Natalya Diehm who finished 11th in the overall standings.
