Laura Kenny      

Four-time Olympic Gold Medalist, Cycling; Most Decorated British Female Olympian

Laura Kenny is a professional track and road cyclist, who specializes in the omnium, team pursuit and scratch race disciplines. She races for British Cycling and the professional cycling team, Matrix Pro Cycling.

With four Olympic gold medals, having won both the team pursuit and the omnium at both the 2012 and 2016 games, Kenny is both the most successful female track cyclist in Olympic history (behind only Dutch track and road legend Leontien van Moorsel among all female cyclists), and Great Britain's most successful Olympic female competitor in any sport.

Kenny married fellow Olympic track cyclist Jason Kenny in September 2016 and the couple announced the birth of their first child in August 2017. They spend most of their time near Manchester, in order to allow them to train at the HSBC UK British Cycling Academy.
