Victoria represented Great Britain and England in international competition, winning nine world titles including a record six in the individual sprint competition. Pendleton is the reigning World Champion for the sprint, and a former Olympic, European and Commonwealth champion. In 2012 she won the gold medal in the keirin at the 2012 Summer Olympics, as well as silver in the individual sprint.

Victoria began her cycling career on the grass track at the age of nine– an area where her father Max once specialised and held the title as national champion.

She was talent spotted by a national coach at the age of 16 but chose to focus on her studies rather than training full time.

In 2005, Victoria Louise Pendleton won her first World Championship title, taking Gold in the Sprint, an event in which she has dominated ever since winning silver in 2006 and gold in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

In 2007, Victoria made history when she won an unprecedented three world championship gold medals, establishing herself as the world’s best female track cyclist. Her achievements were recognised further by winning “The Sunday Times Sportswoman of the Year” award as well as the “Sports Journalists’ Association Sportswoman of the Year”.

However her achievements in 2007 were topped by 2008’s results when she won two gold medals and a silver medal at the World Championships then the ultimate prize in track cycling, the Olympic Gold medal for women’s sprint in Beijing.

In the 2009 New Year’s Honours list, Victoria was awarded an MBE and in 2010 Victoria successfully defended her world champion title in the Sprint for the fourth year on the run.

Victoria regained her title as Sprint World Champion in 2012 after a close fought semi final match with Anna Meares of Australia, the very rider who had de-throned her a year earlier in Apeldoorn.

In August 2012, at the Olympic Games in London, Pendleton and Varnish broke the world record in the qualifying stages of the team sprint before being relegated in the semi-finals. She recovered to win a gold medal in the keirin event, she also set a new Olympic record of 10.724 seconds in the qualifiers of the individual sprint.
