Like the rest of the country, you were probably screaming at the television as the relative unknown Katy cycled to bronze victory in Rio in 2016.

Katy started as a heptathlete, and represented Great Britain at the 2012 World Junior Championships. She switched over to cycling in April 2013, with instant success, winning medals in three events at that year’s British National Track Championships and medalling twice at the 2014 UEC Junior and U23 European Track Championships.

By 2015, she had represented Great Britain at her debut UCI Track Cycling World Championship and, early in 2016, won her first medal in Hong Kong with the team sprint. Also in 2015 at the European Track Championships she won a gold medal for the keirin and a silver in the team sprint, and 4 gold medals in the sprint, keirin, 500-metre time trial and team sprint, in national competitions.

At the 2016 Olympics she qualified second fastest and went on to win a bronze medal. Whoop!
