Who was the first British woman to win four Olympic gold medals?
Laura Rebecca Kenny (née Trott; born 24 April 1992) is a British track and road cyclist who specialises in the team pursuit, omnium, scratch race and madison disciplines.
With four Olympic gold medals, having won both the team pursuit and the omnium at both the 2012 and 2016 games, Kenny is both the most successful female track cyclist in Olympic history (behind only Dutch track and road legend Leontien van Moorsel among all female cyclists), and Great Britain's most successful Olympic female competitor in any sport.
Since first appearing at the European Track Championships in 2010, she has won seven World Championship, a record twelve European Championship and one Commonwealth Games titles, as part of a total of 29 medals. On the road, Kenny won the British National Road Race Championships in 2014, taking the under-23 title in the same race, and has ridden for the Matrix Fitness Pro Cycling team since 2015.
