Houvenaghel slams 'juvenile' team-mates

Wendy Houvenaghel criticises her GB team-mates and coach Shane Sutton after missing out on a gold medal.

The Northern Ireland rider was left out of all three team pursuit races as Dani King, Laura Trott and Jo Rowsell won gold in a world record time.

Houvenaghel needed to compete in at least one of the three races to secure a medal.

Team GB's Cycling Performance Director Dave Brailsford responded by saying that he and his team had to "take the personal element out of it, look at the data and be professional".

"Our job is to support the people on the track, to win medals and we've had a few tough decisions to make," said Brailsford.
