Victoria Pendleton - CelebHealthy_comVictoria Louise Gardner, famously known as Victoria Pendleton, is English former track cyclist who specialized in the sprint, team sprint, and keirin disciplines. She was born on September 24, 1980 in Stotfold, Bedfordshire, England to parents Max Pendleton and Pauline M Viney. She is also known to have a twin-brother named Alex James Pendleton. Victoria already started to be involved in racing when she was nine years old, particularly riding in a 400m event on the grass track at Fordham, England. Years later, she was spotted by Marshal Thomas, an assistant national track coach but she took a break from her hobby since she wanted to concentrate more on her studies by that time. It was in the year 2001 when she joined the British National Track Championships and brought home one bronze and three silver medals. In 2005, she dominated the UCI Track Cycling World Championships and earned her first major medal with gold. In 2012, she broke the world record when she joined the 2012 Summer Olympics and qualified for the semi-finals.

When Victoria was interviewed by the Huffington Post – UK and was asked how she maintains her athletic and fabulous body, she said, “At the moment, I’ve had a lot of time off the gym – I’ve had a year off weight lifting. I’ve been doing body weight exercises and kettle bells – again – these are things I didn’t do while training for cycling because you do barbell techniques. Now my focus is more on upper body strength and learning new techniques. I wanted to take up boxing training, there’s something that has always appealed to me, hitting pads and so on. In the past I’ve only done it for rehab reasons – that is on my list of things to do.”

For her diet, she explained, “Things have changed massively since I retired and I don’t need protein shakes or to eat 3,000-plus calories anymore.”
