These past six weeks have seen Bradley Wiggins transformed into a household
name across Great Britain
and following his victory in the men’s Olympic time trial in London yesterday afternoon, the 32-year-old
addressed the media to discuss his achievements.
Wiggins followed up his historic Tour de France victory last month – when,
in the colours of Team Sky, he became the first Briton to win the race – by
clinching his fourth Olympic gold medal and seventh in total at Hampton Court on
Wednesday. It was a result that saw him become Britain’s most decorated Olympian
and pushed him onto the front page of the national newspapers for the second
time in little over a week.
In this video press conference, Wiggins talks about being humbled to be
mentioned alongside the likes of Sir Chris Hoy and Sir Steve Redgrave and
pledged that the success and fame will not change him.
