Kenny eyes more success

November 13, 2012 16:21 pm

Jason Kenny wants to savour the feeling of victory time and again by becoming a serial winner.

The natural heir to Sir Chris Hoy as British Cycling's sprint king, Kenny is eager to claim multiple successes leading into the Rio de Janeiro Games of 2016.

Already a three-time Olympic champion, the 24-year-old is keen to regularly experience the feeling of crossing the line first, just as he did twice in the London 2012 Velodrome in August.

"I don't feel any different; I don't feel like the Olympic sprint champion. I just feel normal," said Kenny, who won gold in the sprint and team sprint in August.

"These last couple of weeks I've really suffered in the motivation department and I can't understand why, because I've just won the biggest race in the world that I could possibly win.

"What I've come to realise is that I loved winning it, I loved actually winning it and racing it. I want to get that feeling back.

"With that in mind I'm keen to get back on it, put some hard yards in now and hopefully when February comes around I can get that feeling back. Winning the worlds is a massive, massive thing that I want to do. I've got to get to work now."

Kenny's immediate focus is this weekend's Track World Cup in Glasgow at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, but the Track Cycling World Championships in Minsk in February are a major target.
