Wiggins wins Tour de France


Three-time Olympic track champion Bradley Wiggins became the first Briton to win the Tour de France on Sunday, July 22. He finished with a winning margin of 3 minutes and 21 seconds. “I don’t know what to say, I’ve had 24 hours for it to soak in,” the 32-year-old Wiggins was quoted as saying in BBC News. He began his sprint early and kept Slovakian Peter Sagan and Australian Matthew Goss at bay. The track champion crossed the line with his arms raised, having helped set up the sprint victory of compatriot Mark Cavendish who claimed a fourth consecutive final-stage victory. Wiggins said, “You never imagine it will happen to you but it’s amazing.”
