ECCLESTON’S Bradley Wiggins became one of Great Britain’s most decorated Olympians as he raced to victory in the time trial.

It has been a year to remember for the 31-year-old who earlier in the summer became the Tour de France winner.

Wiggins was cheered on by hundreds of fans who lined the streets waving Great British flags and cheered him on.

He rode around parts of the course at the end searching for his wife Catherine and children and now has a place in Olympic history with four golds, one silver and two bronze medals.

Wiggins crossed the finishing line in a time of 50.39.54 ahead of German Tony Martin 51.21.54 and Great Britain star Chris Froome.

The medals moved Great Britain up to 10th in the table.
