Pendleton in London Olympics 2012 had bad day on Thursday, when she and Jess Varnish were disqualified from the women’s sprint team for wrong changeover. They made no mistake for this time and Victoria Pendleton turned victorious as she went on to win gold as she cruised past her rival, Anna Meares of Australia.
‘I can barely believe it right now. I was so focused, it was so hard. Thank you so much to everyone who helped me get here, the crowd have been fantastic,” said the 31-year-old from Stotfold, who is set to retire after the London Games. “”I didn’t look for their race, I just raced my own. My legs were good from last night and I still wanted to really show what I’ve got and it worked out okay, I guess. ”
