The President of Tynwald, the Hon Clare Christian MLC, has added her congratulations to the stream of greetings flowing to Peter Kennaugh on his success in the London 2012 Team Pursuit event at the London Velodrome.
Madam President said: ‘What a fantastic achievement! Peter Kennaugh triggered an explosion of pride and delight in the island tonight with an outstanding performance at the London 2012 Games to bring home the gold medal with his team colleagues, while at the same time beating their own world record created only yesterday. Our congratulations go to him on adding this fiercely sought pinnacle of achievement to his already impressive list of sporting successes.’
Madam President has already conveyed a message of support to Mark Cavendish on his sterling effort in the Olympic road race earlier in the Games. She continued: ‘The outstanding sporting endeavours of these two Manxmen are promoting the Isle of Man to an international audience and inspiring a new generation of cyclists to great heights and I wish these world-class sportsmen every success for the future.’
