JASON and Laura Kenny are two of the most successful athletes in British history – making them one dazzling power couple.
The pair have come close to announcing retirements but are still on their bikes looking to challenge for titles.
Both Kennys will be competing at the Olympics this year in Tokyo, hoping to add to their stunning collection of medals already.
How many Olympic medals to Jason and Laura Kenny have?
Jason Kenny has competed at three Olympic Games during his career, 2008 in Beijing, 2012 in London and 2016 in Rio.
The 33-year-old has won a staggering SIX gold medals in that time, with one silver medal to add to his collection.
At the 2008 Games, Kenny came first in the Team Sprint but finished second in the Sprint.
At 2012, he one-upped himself by winning both the sprint and the team sprint events, before doing the same in 2016, adding the Keirin event to his winnings.
Laura, on the other hand, has competed at two Olympic Games.
She won her first two gold medals in London nine years ago, topping the Omnium and the Team Pursuit events.
The 29-year-old then went on to repeat her success in 2016.
What events are they competing in at the Tokyo games?
Jason will once again compete in the Sprint, Team Sprint and Keirin events and he'll be hoping to add more medals to his cabinet.
Joint-record holder for most Olympic golds as a Brit Chris Hoy, however, is expecting him to bring at least one medal home.
“I definitely think he’ll win a medal of some colour, whether he gets a gold, who knows,” he said.
Laura, on the other hand, is the favourite in her events, and could come back to the UK with the same amount of golds as her husband Jason.
She will also be going for Gold in the same events she went for at her two previous Games in the Omnium and Team Pursuit.
