DAME Laura Kenny will represent Team England in the Commonwealth Games taking place in Birmingham this summer.

Five-time Olympic champion, Kenny, 30, from Chelford will be contesting her second Commonwealth event.

She won gold in the points race at Glasgow 2014.

The track endurance rider said: "I cannot wait to get on my bike again at the Commonwealth Games for Team England.

"There's nothing better than going out on track in front of a home Games crowd...especially at the Lee Valley VeloPark; a place with one or two happy memories for me!"
