Laura Trott had gold medal inspiration at a young age

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.

ITV News' Mark Austin went to meet Trott in the build up to London 2012.
