Cyclist Lewis Oliva, who spent seven years with British Cycling, says Olympic medals are proof its “brutal” training programme is justified.

Oliva, 24, now with Welsh Cycling, said medals are “the bottom line” and any athlete unhappy in the British set-up should leave.

British Cycling recently admitted it had not paid “sufficient care and attention” to riders’ wellbeing.
