Swift speeds to world gold
And now the Rotherham star is striving to bag even more honours at the Olympics this summer.
Swift (24) held off a late challenge from South African Nolan Hoffman to claim the
rainbow jersey in the 15km scratch race.
The 60-lap race produced an enthralling final lap as Swift made his move on the leading pack to take a dominant lead.
Hoffman and Netherlands rider Wim Stroetinga followed, but it was the Team Sky man
who held on for a huge win.
Swift has been billed as "one to watch" in the lead-up to the Olympics and has a growing reputation as one of the fastest young sprinters in the world.
"This win hasn't quite sunk in yet," added Swift.
