Shanaze Reade - Cycling
British cycling Shanaze Read
'Speedy Ready' is only 18 and has already set the cycling world alight.

Athletics was her first love, but after watching a local BMX race in her home town of Crewe, she was hooked. Out went the spikes, in came the bikes.

She was World U-18 BMX champion at 15, has eight European BMX titles, five British BMX titles and was recently crowned world BMX champion in Canada for the third time.

In March she cruised into track cycling and won a world gold in the Women's Team Sprint with Victoria Pendleton. Read says: "My goals won't be complete until I become Olympic champion".
