Almost all Olympic athletes have taken inspiration from athletes they looked up to in their childhood, but when they look back can they pick out one moment they remember from the Olympics that really stands out?

Ahead of their departure to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympic Games the Team GB track cyclists relocated to the Celtic Manor Hotel in south Wales for a final training camp.

For two riders, Jason Kenny and Ed Clancy, their first memories of being an Olympian came in 2008 in Beijing. Both athletes came away with their first gold medals and both repeated the feat four years later in London.

Laura Trott, however, remembered back to the 2004 Games when Dame Kelly Holmes won the first of her two gold medals in a year when she became only the third woman to win both the 800m and 1500m in the same Games.

Becky James picked out the moment when fellow Welsh cyclist Nicole Cooke won gold in the women’s road race in 2008, becoming the first British woman to win a cycling gold medal.

And Owain Doull also remembered watching Ed Clancy, Geraint Thomas, Bradley Wiggins and Paul Manning win gold in Beijing at a time when he was just getting into cycling
