Laura Trott, who is Britain’s most successful female Olympian with four gold medals, chose to commemorate the moment she shared with fiancée Jason Kenny. Laura said: “I picked the moment where I went and kissed Jason after his win in the Kierin to win his sixth Gold Medal. It was a mixture of relief but also feeling so happy for him. The atmosphere was incredible, it was like a switch flicked on and he just became a superstar. I remember crying and he just had this massive smile on his face. Even though there were cameras everywhere, it felt like a moment for us. It was the perfect end to the Games..
