Jason Kenny Was The Most Amazing Performer At The Olympics On Tuesday

Jan Ortega | 22 August, 2016, 00:54

Rio de Janerio: Jason Kenny, Britain's new track cycling king, was looking forward to something a little more sedate after his golden rides during a fast and furious week at the Olympic velodrome.

Katy Marchant - Bronze in women's team sprint.

"People were turning up asking could they meet Jason Kenny, so they were a bit disappointed when I stepped out; they must have thought that I had really let myself go since the Olympics". "I'm just so happy", Trott told the BBC.

Kenny added to his earlier men's sprint and team pursuit golds in Rio, having won twice at London 2012 and once at Beijing four years before that - also getting silver in China.

After cruising round the 100-lap points race Tuesday, the final portion of the six-element Omnium, she was congratulated by fiancé Jason Kenny who surpassed her Rio haul by one, winning three gold to take his tally to a British record-equalling six. Trott said the Brits simply do not have the same equipment outside of the Olympics. "It's nice to be able to share the special moment", Kenny said.

"You realize how hard it is to do it all again".

The Weymouth-based four-time world champion built a commanding lead ahead of Tuesday's race, winning three of the 11 races in the competition. She worries enough for both of us so I can stay relaxed. Trott insists they just peaked at the right time.

But our cycling head coach Ian Dyer has hit back at these suggestions, saying: 'It's a shame.

It was a ideal 10 for British cycling couple when they even topped hosts Brazil for gold medals with five golds between them. Not many couples in the Olympic village can enjoy their success together.

'The position we found ourselves in at the Commonwealth Games, we got absolutely destroyed in some events. "If you are to peak every four years, it needs to be a bloody good peak, otherwise it's just a pimple", said Dyer.

"It's never about the World Championships beforehand - it's always been about this - and our programmes have been very much designed around this, so I think that makes such a huge difference to other countries".

Trott's mother Glenda said: "They've got a wedding to plan".

If there was one person who could rain on Britain's parade it was Kristina Vogel of Germany.
