Dear Chris Hoy After winning the men’s keir at the Track World Cycling Championship held in Copenhagen, he became the world champion for the 10th time today in 2010.
The then-34-year-old player managed to make it to the final despite being hit in the heat, and then beat Malaysian Azizulhasni Awang at the finish line to take his second championship medal.
Hoy competed in his first major global event since winning three gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, while he won a bronze medal in the team sprint at the Ballerup Super Arena.
The success in Copenhagen was a successful comeback after Hoy suffered a serious hip injury in an accident last year.
However, all was not well for the Scots – after a false start in the heat, he was blocked by Josiah Ng Onn Lam, which caused him to drop and remove another driver and the race to a halt.
Hoy said, “I absolutely didn’t like being dumped on my back in the first round, it was unusual.
“I was pissed off but thankfully I wasn’t injured and got back on the bike.”
Hoy took the world titles to 11 with another keir’s victory. Melbourne In 2012 and later that year, he was Britain’s most successful Olympian in terms of gold medals won at the time.
In London 2012, he won the team sprint and keirin to six Olympic gold medals, beating five medals won by rower Sir Steve Redgrave.
Hoy’s Olympic record has been eclipsed ever since. Jason KennyWinner of her seventh gold medal while defending keirin’s title at Tokyo 2020.
