Laura Kenny (nee Trott) is a British born cyclist, with particular talents on the track. She shot to fame at the 2012 London Olympics where she won gold in the women’s team pursuit and women’s omnium at the tender age of 20.

Now, Kenny’s palmares to date make her the most decorated female Olympic track cyclist and the most successful female British Olympian.

The Harlow born rider has collected four Olympic gold medals in total – two each in the Team Pursuit and Omnium – as well as a host of World Championship titles.

Kenny has also competed extensively on the road. In the summer of 2014, the young rider took the British road title, outsprinting Lizzie Deignan to take the win, and she came third in 2015.

Kenny is likely to improve on the road as she matures, but for now, her devastating turn of speed on the track hasn’t fully been put to use on the road.

Nevertheless, her love of the track – she grew up racing at Welwyn track where she was spotted by British Cycling’s Talent Team – is set to continue, as she became Britain’s most decorated female Olympic athlete in history after claiming a fourth gold medal at the 2016 Rio Games.
