Jason says thanks for medal praise

First published in News

JASON Kenny has thanked his fans for congratulating him after winning gold at the Track Cycling World Championships on Friday.

The three-times Olympic gold medalist already has one World Championship medal to his name — after Gregory Bauge was stripped of the medal in 2011 for an anti-doping violation.

And now he has a second, after winning the Keirin final.

The 24-year-old, a former Mount St Joseph’s pupil, took to Twitter to thank his fans after the race.

He tweeted: “World champion! I can’t believe it ... what an unreal day. Thanks for all the messages.”

His girlfriend, Olympic champion Laura Trott , aged 20, tweeted her excitement after the win and said she was the “happiest girlfriend in the world”.
