Double-Olympic Gold Medallist Laura Trott has paid tribute to her Parents for her success...
Laura Trott won her second gold medal of her first ever Olympics by topping the women's omnium.
The cyclist from Cheshunt, who's also with the Welwyn Wheelers, says her Mum Glenda and Dad Adrian backed her every step of the way: "I owe everything to them - I couldn't have done it without them.
When I was younger, they put so much money into it and my Dad gave up his cricket to take us out.
I wouldn't even be in cycling if it wasn't for my Mum."
But, it wasn't to be the perfect ending for Stotfold's Victoria Pendleton.
The Letchworth-schooled sports star bowed out by winning silver in the women's sprint, where she finished behind old rival Anna Meares of Australia.
Speaking after yesterday's competition, Trott says Pendleton has been a heavy influence on her career: "She can finally go and do what she enjoys, because the last four years have been so stressful for her.
She is a massive inspiration to me and if I can inspire as many people as Vicky has, then that would be an achievement in itself."

Pendleton admits it's a relief to be retiring after a tough four years: "At times I thought I wasn't going to make it, so I feel proud of myself for even getting here.
Coming away with Gold and Silver medals is even more than deep down in my heart I thought possible, so I have no regrets."
Sir Chris Hoy claimed his 6th career gold medal - meaning he's won more than any other British Olympian.
