Victoria has represented Great Britain and England in track cycling, winning nine world titles including a record six titles in the individual sprint competition. Suffice to say Victoria is the reigning World Champion for the sprint and an Olympic, European and Commonwealth champion.
The Olympic gold medal-winner rode her first race, a 400m event, on the grass track at Fordham when she was nine. Despite showing promise at a young age, Victoria wanted to concentrate on her studies, obtaining a degree in Sport and Exercise. However she still managed to win several medals at the British National track championship while at University.
Victoria recently won gold and silver at the London 2012 Olympics. Although she is now retired from cycling, Victoria has stated that she may start rowing competitively.
