"Wiggo" hoping to finish on a high note
Bradley Wiggins, the first British cyclist to win the Tour de France (2012), is determined to finish his remarkable career on a high note in Rio.
"Wiggo", who is set to retire from elite-level racing at the end of 2016, already boasts an impressive Olympic record (7 medals, including 4 gold).
He is now targeting a place in British Olympic history: a 5th gold would put him level with rowing great Steve Redgrave, and just 1 behind another cycling legend, Chris Hoy (6 gold medals).
At 36, the hour world record holder (54.526km) has made the Rio Games a clear priority. He will be hoping to help Great Britain win team pursuit gold for the 3rd successive Olympics.
