She won her first two gold medals during the London 2012 Olympics but doubled her tally in Rio with a win in the women’s team pursuit before celebrating with her family after topping the points tally in the omnium.
At the age of 24, Trott is well on course to overtake Bradley Wiggins and become Britain’s most successful Olympian ever.
The gold medal was never really in doubt.
Trott finished first in four events out of the six and took second in other other two, highlighting her complete dominance in women’s cycling.
