Kentish Town teenager impressed against rivals from across the country last month
Kentish Town teenager Oscar Nilsson-Julien had plenty to celebrate last month after winning three gold medals at the recent National Junior and Youth Track Cycling Championships.
The 16-year-old travelled to the event in Newport, Wales and enjoyed extraordinary success as he returned with five medals in total.
Nilsson-Julien’s three gold medals came in the scratch race, the points race and the madison race.
The teenager came second in the individual pursuit and collected a bronze in the sprint event.
It was a tremendous show of cycling ability from the Kentish Town youngster as he impressed in events ranging from the speed of sprints to the stamina-sapping endurance races.
Nilsson-Julien is supported in his cycling career by GLL Sport Foundation, SportsAid UK and Dare2b, and also receives tremendous backing from his club, VC Londres.
