SOUTHAMPTON cycling superstar Dani King has vowed to do everything she can to make her Olympic dream a reality.

The 20-year-old has become the sport’s latest sensation after a gold-medal performance at the Track World Championships.

King won the team pursuit title, along with fellow British riders Wendy Houvenhagel and Laura Trott, while also claiming bronze in the non-Olympic scratch race.

Her remarkable performance in the Netherlands has thrown the former Barton Peveril student firmly into the limelight ahead of the London 2012 Games.

And, after helping Britain to their only gold of the World Championships, the Hamble racer has every chance of suiting up for Team GB again next summer.

King herself admits her chances of competing at London’s stunning new 6,000-seat velodrome have grown enormously in the last few weeks.

And she is determined to make sure the opportunity doesn’t go past her.

“I think London is really achievable, I’m extremely motivated for that,” King told the Daily Echo. “Before I went into the World Championships I knew it could be a possibility.

“After achieving the gold medal I think it’s really possible if I keep going, keep my feet on the ground and continue to work hard.

“It’s so exciting, because it’s always been my dream to reach the Olympics. With this being a home Olympics and a home crowd it would be so special too.

“I really want this and I am going to do everything I can to get into the team.”
