(WDAY TV) -- Kids from around the area are getting a BMX riding lesson from an Olympic hopeful, Dominique Daniels.

Daniels, an Arizona native, took an interesting path to BMX. She had a chance to run track at perennial powers like LSU and Texas, but instead she's become stronger on wheels.

Daniels says, "track and field helped a lot in cross coordinating my sports. The fast twitch muscles because I did all sprinting and our sport, BMX, is basically a 40 second sprint. So crossing over from both of them wasn't that hard."
