Victoria Pendleton

Victoria Pendleton won the women's keirin at the end of the world track championships in Palma today to take her gold medal tally to three, and the team's to seven. The result puts Pendleton in the record books and the British team on top of the world with a display so dominant throughout the four days that it left other nations wondering how they can compete.

The British team started the day with five golds already back in their hotel, but they were far from finished. Chris Hoy took his fourth kilometre title (his second gold of these championships) earlier in the day before Pendleton kept the nerves at bay to win the Keirin.
