London Olympics 2012: St. Cloud's Alise Post Happy To Finish Top-8

St. Cloud's Alise Post finished eighth in her BMX seeding run on Wednesday to determine her starting position on Friday's quarterfinals. She had a time of 39.890 seconds, which will put her in the first heat.

Post said she liked the course and, though she wasn't wholly satisfied with her performance, she achieved what she set out to in making the top eight, via Rachel Blount of the Star Tribune:

"I definitely think I could have been more aggressive out there,'' said Post, currently sixth among elite women in the International Cycling Union's rankings. "I definitely think there is a lot of room for improvement, which is good. I really wanted to be in the top eight, and I made that, so I'm happy with that.''

Each heat of eight riders will do four runs on Friday in the semifinals and the top four will advance to the finals, scheduled for later that day.
