Already a nine time World Champion, British track beauty Victoria Pendleton, who picked up her first gold medal in Beijing in 2008, is ready to make a more lasting impression on her fans. She also stated, “As this is my last Olympic Games, I am so proud to have been a part of this landmark year for female athletes."
