Sophie Capewell dedicated her pair of Commonwealth medals to her dad, as she left Birmingham 2022 with a silver and a bronze from her time on the track.
Capwell's father, Nigel, represented Great Britain at the Sydney 2000 Olympics, but passed away under a year before his daughter took to the track in Birmingham.
But he was there in spirit with the 24-year-old, who bounced back from a disappointing start to the Games to earn 500m time trial bronze before following up the next day with silver in the keirin.
Before the Games, she had just a singular World team sprint bronze to her name but has gone from strength to strength since, adding another World bronze as well as European silver and bronze to her growing collection.
The Lichfield native claimed numerous national titles in sprint events at youth and junior level and stepped up to the British Cycling Team Senior Academy in 2016.
