Victoria Pendleton is a double Olympic Gold medalist (Beijing 2008 and London 2012) and 9 times World Champion track cyclist. She retired in 2012 leaving an incredible legacy as one of Great Britain’s most successful cyclists.
In 2015, she took on the brave challenge to become a jump jockey in one year, having never ridden a horse. True to form, she pulled off the remarkable feat in 2016 by finishing fifth in the Foxhunter Chase at The Cheltenham Festival, one of the world’s biggest horse racing events. She went on to become an ITV horse racing presenter.
Victoria was appointed Laureus Sport for Good Ambassador in 2016 and has since supported several projects focused on children in sport.
