Jason Kenny, British track cyclist, is a sporting hero in our eyes. At 28 years of age he has achieved a lot and topped it all off at this year’s recent Olympic Games where he took home 3 gold medals.
Jason was only 20 years of age when he won his first gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics in the Team Sprint. In the 2012 Olympics, he defeated his great rival, the Frenchman Grégory Baugé by winning gold, and won another gold in the Team Sprint also. This therefore means that Jason, alongside fellow track cyclist Sir Chris Hoy, holds the highest number of gold medals for a British Athlete. We cannot imagine how amazing that must feel for him.
Jason started competing at a high level from around the age of 15 and grew from strength to strength from then. Born and bred in Bolten, the leisure centre at the Bolten One Complex has now been named after him.
Jason is just one example of hundreds of successful athletes across the world that we can look to for inspiration with our own sporting endeavours. Whether or not we would ever want to compete at professional or Olympic standards, seeing what these people have done and can do, can only motivate us to train that little bit harder and aim that bit higher.
