Show us your reaction when you saw Sir Paul McCartney and the rest of the Velodrome on their feet for you?
My life is a rollercoaster, you have so many ups and downs. But it’s not all like this kind of winning, that doesn’t happen every day and obviously with all the training sessions that you kind of push yourself in, you don’t get a medal at the end of them, you’re still pushing and you’re still trying to get to Rio itself. So yeah, I would say that my life is just generally a rollercoaster.
How do you steer that rollercoaster?
I have a lot of support staff that help me and make sure I’m on track. I work really closely with my coach and I think it is really important to have that kind of relationship, because he knows whether I’m having a down day or whether I’m having a really good day and he knows exactly how hard to push me or maybe not push me in some cases. I put my trust in my support team and hope that we get it right.
