Victoria Pendleton on Great Britain’s success in the cycling

Great Britain has performed remarkably well in the cycling at the Olympics. They have won seven of the 10 events, three silver medals and two bronze for 12 total.

So what do they base their success on? Victoria Pendleton who won the gold in women’s sprint, tries to explain:

“Well, I think it’s a combination of things, really,” said Victoria Pendleton. “I think we’re lucky enough to have drawn on some real specialists to come and work with us - the psychologists, the nutritionists and the English Institute of Sport. And there are a lot of different factors that we now have that have improved our performance I think just in sort of marginal ways in lots of different places. And I think the team atmosphere is so good and everyone draws on each other’s success.”
