Olympic cyclist Joanna Rowsell will be made an MBE at Buckingham Palace later for services to cycling. Joanna, who is from Sutton, won gold in the Womens Team Pursuit in the 2012 Olympics.
Joanna, who has alopecia, is currently the National, European and World champion in her event and also the World Record Holder. The condition means she lost all her hair when she was 10 years old.
On her website, Joanna said she had recently been doing work with Alopecia UK, meeting people in the same situation, who had never met anyone else with the condition. She said since the Olympics, she had felt much more able to talk about it.
