Laura Trott has underlined her billing as the future star of British cycling with two Olympic gold medals in the women's team pursuit and omnium.
As her family photos reveal, the 20-year-old was already brushing shoulders with Team GB's established Olympians well before she joined the elite.
Sir Steve Redgrave joked he was set for a "comeback" after Sir Chris Hoy surpassed his five Olympic gold medals.
Sir Chris told the BBC that Sir Steve was "an inspiration" and "that to be mentioned in the same sentence as this guy (Sir Steve) is just incredible".
After winning gold in the Men's Keirin, Sir Chris Hoy told the BBC:
I'm in shock and trying to compose myself but this is just surreal, this is what I always wanted - to win a gold in front of your own crowd.
You can't express the feelings I'm having right now.
He added that he was "99.9% sure" he would not be competing at Rio 2016 but is aiming to take part at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
Nearly yelled myself hoarse cheering on Chris Hoy to yet another victory. What an Olympian!From @MayorofLondon on Twitter:
