Biography

www.victoriapendleton.co.uk

After a disappointing Athens 2004 Olympic debut, Victoria Pendleton won individual sprint gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and she currently has nine world titles to her name.

In 2009 she placed 84th in FHM magazine’s 100 sexiest women while she has a tattoo on her right wrist that reads “Today is the greatest day I’ve ever known” – a lyric by the Smashing Pumpkins.

Rewarded with an MBE in 2009, Pendleton wants to own an allotment after the London 2012 Olympics.

She also plans to marry Scott Gardner, a former sports scientist with the British Cycling coaching team, after London 2012.

At the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Pendleton won gold in keirin and silver in sprint.
