Olympic cyclists announce engagement

Laura Trott has announced her engagement to fellow British Olympic cycling star Jason Kenny.

She

wrote on Twitter: 

“Merry Christmas everyone. I’ve had the most amazing couple of days thanks to @JasonKenny107 and the whole family #engaged”.

Both riders won two gold medals on the track at the London Olympics in 2012.

Kenny, 26, was successful in the

team sprint

and

individual sprint,

while Trott, 22, took gold in the

team pursuit

and

omnium

events.

When the Royal Mail marked London 2012 by painting postboxes gold in the hometown of every British Olympic champion, Trott received two.

After a box was painted in Harlow, where she was born, Trott

tweeted the Post Office to ask for one in her hometown of Cheshunt “where it should be”.

Kenny, from Bolton, had previously won the team sprint at the Beijing Olympics four years earlier.

At this year’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, with the pair both competing in England colours, Trott

won the women’s 25km points race,

while Kenny took silver in the team sprint and individual sprint.
