Ed Clancy – London 2012
Life has been very different post games. The constant thoughts of eating well, sleeping well and training 100% seem like a distant memory for starters! Although Im still riding my bike, the media, catching up with friends and family and enjoying other aspects of life have been the priority.
Everywhere I go people are raving about how much they enjoyed the Olympics which is great to hear! It was brilliant to be part of such a successful home Olympics.
Winning a Gold medal in the Team Pursuit, with a world record, with three of my best mates in front of a GB crowd which included many friends and family was a unique experience which is unlikely to ever be topped! All the sacrifice, hard work and preparation was worth it. It was an unbelieveable day! I knew getting a medal in the Omnium would be a tough task after putting soo much into the team pursuit in the previous days. So to get a bronze medal in the Omnium I was over the moon once again.
