LONDON OLYMPICS: GREAT BRITAIN ON FIRE


The track cycling events are all wrapped up at London’s Olympic Velodrome now and it is without a doubt that the Brits are still the super power on the track. I will admit that there were times in the past few years where I thought the British dynasty was over. Since the 2008 Olympics, Australia, Canada, France, Germany and USA all seem to have had moments where they overpowered the UK in certain events. However, while bidding farewell to some of their veteran stars and simultaneously ushering in young, fresh champions into the international spotlight, British Cycling has proven that they are still the force to be reckoned with. Over the past 6 days in London, British track cyclists were awarded 9 Olympic medals (7 Gold, 1 Silver and 1 Bronze) and have raised the bar on 3 World Records. Major kudos go out to Team GB for such an impressive show on their own home turf.
