French cycling legend Jeannie Longo today clinched a place to compete in her seventh Olympics at the age of 49.

The five-time world champion staked her claim with an outstanding win in both the road race and time-trial at the French National Championships last week. She finshed in 31 minutes 16 seconds, over a minute ahead of second-placed Edwige Pitel.

A remarkable achievement. Let’s see if she can produce the goods?
