経歴

Bradley WIGGINS

Excelling on road and track, Bradley Wiggins is Great Britain’s most decorated Olympian with eight medals, just ahead of fellow cyclists Chris Hoy and Jason Kenny. Wiggins stepped up to the podium at every Olympic Games from Sydney 2000 to Rio 2016, collecting five golds along the way. 

Big ambitions

Born in Ghent (BEL), Bradley Wiggins is the son of late Australian cyclist Gary Wiggins, a successful six-day racer in the 1970s and 80s. Wiggins Jr moved to London with his British mother, Linda, when he was a boy and took up cycling, inspired by the sight of Chris Boardman winning individual pursuit gold at Barcelona 1992. Wiggins, who competed in his first race at the age of 12, was so convinced of his abilities that he told one of his teachers: “I'm going to be Olympic champion. I'm going to wear the yellow jersey in the Tour de France.”

A first Olympic medal

The ambitious young cyclist, who would later be mentored by Boardman, honed his skills at the Herne Hill Velodrome in London, which had been built for the 1948 Olympic Games, and specialised in the madison and the pursuit, an event in which he won the 1998 world junior title, at the age of 18. He then got his first taste of the Olympics at Sydney 2000, where he collected bronze in the team pursuit.

A prophesy fulfilled

Wiggins turned professional in 2001, riding for Française des Jeux and Crédit Agricole. Making his second Olympic appearance at Athens 2004, he proved himself a worthy successor to Boardman by winning a total of three medals: gold in the individual pursuit, silver in the team pursuit and bronze in the madison. Following the Games, Wiggins decided to switch to the road, only to return to the track to win individual and team pursuit world titles in Palma de Mallorca (ESP) in 2007. A year later he appeared at his third Games in Beijing, where he became the first rider ever to retain the individual pursuit title. He went on to win the team pursuit crown, with the GB four beating Denmark by 6.7 seconds in the gold medal match and setting a new world record of 3:53.314 in the process. Now the proud owner of six Olympic medals, three of them gold, Wiggins had pulled level with Steve Redgrave as his country’s most successful Olympian of all time.
