LONDON, (Pakistan Point News - APP - 23th August, 2016) - Four-time Olympic champion Laura Trott has expressed annoyance over the questions posed by rivals about British cyclists' extraordinary performances at the Rio Games. Trott won two gold medals and her fiance Jason Kenny claimed three golds as Team GB stormed to the top of the cycling medals table with six goals and 12 in total. Britain won nine medals at this year's World Championships in London, having won only three silver medals at last year's event in Paris, prompting rival cyclists to question their improvement.
But Trott, 24, told BBC radio: "I'm not angry as such, but it is a little bit annoying and frustrating because it is a lot of hard work that has gone into that performance." Australia's Anna Meares and French sprint coach Laurent Gane both said the British cyclists' success in Rio was hard to understand. Germany's Kristina Vogel called it "questionable". Trott added: "British Cycling has always been very much an Olympics-based programme, so for us it wasn't about clearing up at the World Championships.
