Despite his relatively young age, Jason Kenny (24) has already achieved more in the last four years than most riders do in their entire careers.
After winning multiple world and European titles in the junior ranks, Kenny thrust himself into Great Britain's Olympic Games squad in 2008 and came away from Beijing with two medals hanging proudly around his neck.
The first of those was gold and came in the team sprint event where he joined forces with Sir Chris Hoy and Jamie Staff and edged out the same French team that had beaten the team to the world title by over half a second just five months earlier.
And on the way to that memorable triumph, the trio also smashed the unofficial world record with their time of 42.95 seconds in the qualifying rounds. Three days later Jason also added a silver medal to his tally after going head-to-head with team-mate Hoy in the individual sprint final.
Never one to rest on his laurels, Kenny continued his fine form into the 2009 season and scooped another silver medal in the team sprint at the World Championships in Poland.
That progression showed no signs of abating in 2010 and Kenny added a bronze World Championships medal to his collection in the team sprint before taking his first world individual sprint title 12 months later in Holland.
That trip would also yield a silver medal in the team sprint, and Kenny was back on the World Championships podium twice more in 2012 after wrapping up a silver medal in the individual sprint and bronze in the Keirin.
