bigquotesDiscover how BMX twins Lizsurley and Queensaray prove to be ‘2 in a million’ as they work their way up from local freestylers to Olympic hopefuls despite their lack of training infrastructure and resources.

Follow the incredible stories of athletes who've beaten the odds and made a name for themselves, proving that anything is possible with enough determination and hard work in The Way of the Wildcard Playlist.

Identical twins, Queensaray and Lizsurley were brought up in the Colombian jungle. Their family never had much but they were instilled with determination and a will to succeed. Their scrappy, make-do attitude has seen them go from flipping their bikes into a homemade rooftop foam pit to having the chance to represent their country and make their community proud as Olympic hopefuls.

 This story is so awesome and inspirational. I have a daughter that started racing since she was 5 years old. She started with BMX then mountain biking (DH XC) and Now she even races against dirt bikes with a modified electric bike. She is 13 now and aspires to be a professional athlete one day, so like the father in this video, I try to provide the best opportunity possible. I will be watching this story to see what comes about three two sisters....

 Where do I send the check to help finance new bikes? (and a new roof) very impressive!

I was kind of worried when they were flipping into that foam pit, theirs only some wire fencing to keep them from going to far if they try a faster run.
