Jason is an Olympic gold-medal winning track cyclist. As part of the excellent Team GB at the 2012 London Olympics he won gold medals in both the team sprint and in the individual sprint, in which he beat Baugé in the final.

He was talent-spotted whilst riding for his local Go-Ride Club and has since followed the paths of the British Cycling Podium Programmes, rising through the Talent Team, the Development and Academy Programmes before finally earning his place on the prestigious Podium Programme in 2008.

Having won numerous World and European titles as a junior, Jason took a massive leap in 2008 when he was selected for the Olympics squad and found himself on the plane to Beijing. After putting in some strong times during training, he was selected as Man Two for the Team Sprint, alongside seasoned Sprint riders Jamie Staff and Chris Hoy, giving Jason his first taste of Olympic victory at just 20 years of age.

Another Olympic medal was soon to follow in the form of a Silver medal in the Sprint, where he competed against Chris Hoy and narrowly missed out in the final. Jason certainly gave Chris a run for his money, with Chris commenting after the race that “Beating him was really tough – it was probably the hardest race of my life.”

Jason was awarded his first world sprint championship title in 2012 (for the 2011 championships) after Frenchman Gregory Bauge was stripped of the title after infringing anti-doping rules.

2012

In 2012 Kenny and Bauge found themselves in the Sprint final once again at the world championships in Melbourne. Bauge came out on top, but only after some brave and innovative tactics from Kenny. Kenny then followed up by winning bronze in the Keirin a couple of days later.

At the London 2012 Olympic Games Kenny won gold in the team sprint with Chris Hoy and Philip Hindes, setting a new world record in the London Velopark. He also won gold in the Men’s sprint final, avenging his previous losses to Bauge with a time of 10.308s in his final lap.

Kenny’s rise as a cyclist has been rapid. He progressed from competing in a domestic junior series to Olympic Champion in only 3 and a half years. He has taken full advantage of the excellent modern day set up in the Great Britain squad to excel from a very early age. He is considerably further ahead, in terms of ability and achievement, than senior riders like Hoy and Craig MacLean were at his age.
