Biography

The pretender to Chris Hoy’s throne, Jason Kenny, MBE, won individual sprint silver at the 2012 World Championships, having been awarded the gold from the year before when France’s Grégory Baugé was stripped of the title after infringing anti-doping rules.

After winning numerous world and European junior titles, Kenny found himself on the plane to the Beijing Olympics as a fresh-faced 20-year-old.

Man two Kenny, along with Hoy and Jamie Staff, won team sprint gold in his first Olympics in Beijing and reached the individual final, only to lose out to Hoy.

At the 2012 World Championships Kenny also won bronze in the keirin behind gold medallist Hoy.

At the 2012 Olympics in London, Kenny won gold in the sprint and gold in the team sprint, with partners Chris Hoy and Philip Hindes.
