Totton cyclist Jon Dibben, who studied PE at Brock, is challenging cycling star Mark Cavendish for his place at the Olympics following a thrilling victory in London.

The 22 year old peddled his way to gold for Great Britain at the UCI Track World Championships in March.

As a result he now stands a chance of making Team GB for the Rio Olympics this summer.

Jon won the 40 km men’s omnium points race having also claimed victory in four out of the 16 sprints that formed part of the event.

The modest young cyclist, who attended Hounsdown School, said the win had done his chances of being selected for the Olympics no harm.

We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for Jon as he bids to compete on the greatest stage of all in Brazil.
