We’ve interviewed him as a World Cup winner, British and European Champion – and now we’re very pleased to be able to interview him as Olympic Team Sprint Champion – not to mention Individual Sprint silver medallist.
Mr. Callum Skinner …
Congratulations sir! That 42.562 – a perfect start to the team sprint campaign, Callum – did you expect qualifying to go so well for the team sprint?
“Philip did, I didn’t expect to go so well.
“Our first ride was a bit of a stab in the dark.
“We had gone well in Newport however there are so many variables that influence our time.
“On competition day it’s better to see how you measure up against your rivals opposed to targeting a time.”
That start you made must have been a huge boost for the whole cycling team?
“Our first ride going so well was so important. Personally, I got on, plus I knew I had more in the tank.
“We genuinely believed we could win it from that point on.”
