‘Not the past’s main force!’ As the cycling strain rises, Chris Hoy focuses on Jason and Laura Kenny.
Sir Chris Hoy believes that Team GB’s golden couple Jason and Laura Kenny have “potential for some gold medals” in cycling.
Sir Chris Hoy, a six-time Olympic champion, told the BBC that cycling superstars Laura and Jason Kenny might bring home a slew of gold medals, while Team GB cycling could take home a “clutch of silvers and bronzes.” His upbeat remarks come as Jason Kenny has returned from retirement to challenge the racing world once more. When compared to a very strong Denmark cycling team, Hoy cautioned that the two are not the “dominant force” they once were.

FIFA 22 promises to be the most realistic football experience yet, thanks to full-team mocap data and machine intelligence.
“I believe there is the potential for some gold medals,” remarked Sir Chris Hoy.
“Whether they can continue to dominate in the manner in which they have in the last three Games remains to be seen.
“However, stars like Laura Kenny – she has a strong chance to win three gold medals in the Team Pursuit starting today.”
Laura’s colleague and husband, Jason Kenny, was then addressed by the Olympic cycling veteran on his medal hopes in Tokyo.
“Jason Kenny is already a six-time gold medalist.
“After Rio, he very much retired, but now he’s back!”
Sir Chris went on to say that the two “are not the dominant force they were in the past.”
However, he predicts that Team GB’s cyclists will win “possibly four gold medals and a slew of silver and bronze medals.”
The track cycling competition is presently taking place in Tokyo, with Team GB striving for gold.
With a time of 3:50.455, Canada was in first place in men’s team pursuit qualifying.
Denmark, on the other hand, has just blown that out of the water with a time of 3:45.014.
The time set by Denmark is a new Olympic record.
That beats Great Britain’s previous best of 3:50.265 achieved in 2016 when they won gold in Rio.
Laura Muir of Team GB breezes through the 1500m heats, while Beth Dobbin of Team GB qualifies for the 200m semi-finals.
On Monday, there are 22 gold medal events.
