Six-time Olympic champion for Great Britain Jason Kenny could retire before the Tokyo Olympics, according to his wife and fellow champion Laura (née Trott).
“He’s going to give himself a bit of time,” Laura Kenny told BBC Sport. “He’s having six months to decide what he wants to do, whether to carry on or to retire.
“I’m not sure he even knows to be totally honest. As athletes, you always want to carry on, you always want to go to the next one… you become this self-absorbed kind of person and everything’s just about you, but there’s bigger things in life than that.”
Jason Kenny was part of the gold medal-winning Great Britain team sprint team at the past three Olympics, and has also won two individual sprints and a keirin title.
