An amazing 2011 season saw Laura win seven World, World Cup and European titles at junior and elite levels including team pursuit gold at her debut UCI Track Cycling World Championships and at the UEC European Track Championships, where Kenny also took the omnium title.
At London 2012, Laura, Joanna Rowsell Shand and Dani King broke the world record each time they rode on their way to the team pursuit gold and two days later, Kenny won the omnium by the closest possible margin of one point with a storming time trial to get the gold.
After another successful three years competing, 2016 saw Laura win the omnium and scratch race at the UCI Track World Championships before the main focus of the year – the Rio Olympics where GB won the women’s team pursuit and Kenny defended her omnium title.
After an extended post-Rio break where Laura gave birth to her first child, she returned to cycling, winning the National Track Championship omnium title in 2018.
Kenny has become Toyota’s lead ambassador for ‘I Am Team GB – The Nation’s Biggest Sports Day’. The national campaign is a central part of our commitment to make movement better for everyone, using the power of the Olympics to make Britain more active.
