Olympic cycling gold medalist Victoria Pendleton has said she is really excited to be 100 days away from competing in the London 2012 Olympic games.
She said the 100 day countdown is a really important milestone for athletes preparing for the games and that she "has as good a chance as any" of winning another gold medal.
A British businessman spends around £500,000 a year on funding young athletes from the UK.
After years of planning and preparation, there are just 100 days to go. Today, a series of events will mark the special occasion.
