Biography

A relatively late starter, becoming a full-time cyclist aged 31, Wendy Houvenaghel is a dentist by profession.

She won individual pursuit silver at Beijing 2008 as Rebecca Romero won gold, but after that event was removed from the Olympic schedule and the team pursuit added, she joins the squad which won gold at the 2012 World Championships, setting a world record in the process.
