CYCLIST Chris Hoy won the first of what could be three gold medals at this year’s Olympics then promised to dance on live television if he completes his hat trick.
The Scot took gold in the team sprint in partnership with Englishmen Jamie Staff and Jason Kenny, beating world champions France in the final.
Hoy, a gold medalist in the kilometre in Athens, has two events left – tomorrow’s keirin, in which riders are paced behind a motorbike before racing for the line, and the individual sprint on Tuesday.
The 32-year-old is world champion in both and, having been 20-1 to win all three, will be on much shorter odds now after success in what was thought to be the longest shot.
He said: “There’s still plenty in the tank.
“At the end of the week, if I get three, I’ll do a dance for you and that’s a promise.”
