One of Britain’s best female cyclists and four-time Olympic Champion, Laura Kenny, has just won her second gold at the European Championships in Glasgow while giving a breathtaking performance at the women’s elimination race earlier on Sunday.

 

On the other hand, Russia’s Evgenia Augustinas grabbed bronze as Kenny, 26, was finally able to secure her 12th European, well-deserved title. Her first gold one on this season’s European championships was he team race on Friday.

 

One of the race’s main competitors, Germany’s Anna Knauer won silver.

 

A great day for Great Britain

 

Yesterday was without a doubt a great day for Britain. In total, it grabbed two golds, one silver and two bronzes spred in different sport categories including swimming.

 

Kenny was only able to get back on the road a couple of months earlier after giving birth to her son exactly one year ago. After Rio 2016, she took some time off to start a family with her long-time partner and Olympic champion Jason.

 

“I’ve got another medal for Albie. I was thinking I didn’t want to leave Albie for nothing because he wasn’t very happy this morning,” Kenny said.

 

“I’m glad I’ve got another medal to take home to him – and he needed another seal mascot because the dog got the last one.”

 

Tomorrow is going to be another big day for Kenny who will try to go for third gold. She will team up with Katie Archibald who won team pursuit gold on Friday. She also took silver on Saturday in the individual pursuit.
