Good News, Laura Kenny shows you can be an active mum and still get back to full time professional sport.
Four times Olympic Champion Laura Trott married Jason Kenny in September 2016 and in August 2017 they had their first child, Albie. Less than a year later she was back at her best winning two gold medals in the European Championships.
Laura said that she loves being at home with her son but also wanted to show that she could combine the role of being a mother whilst continuing to be a world class cyclist. After the birth of Albie she got back in to training later the same year and was again in full competitive action at the British National Championships in February this year where she won a national title. Later that month she took a silver in the World Championships and has now got the two golds in the Europeans.
Laura said “The nights can be hard sometimes but I wouldn’t want to leave Albie at home and we didn’t have him so that somebody else could look after him, we can’t imagine travelling without him”. Albie is obviously her inspiration to do well and to get that all important work-life balance right.
Banana Crumble wish both her and her husband Jason all the best for their sporting and personal ambitions going forward.
