Swift keeps up Olympic charge

ROTHERHAM'S Ben Swift has revealed he plans to continue bidding for Olympic success on the track as well as the road until told otherwise by British Cycling chiefs.

The 22-year-old - who made his Olympic debut in Beijing in 2008 - looked to have committed himself fully to the roads in January after joining Dave Brailsford's Team Sky revolution.

However Swift joined forces with Ed Clancy, Jason Queally, Steven Burke and Andy Tennant last week as part of a five-strong team pursuit squad for the Track Cycling World Championships in Copenhagen.

With only four allowed to ride at once Swift was chosen ahead of former Olympic kilo champion Queally and underlined his potential by guiding Britain to silver at the Ballerup Super Arena.

And after experiencing the track side of life for the first time at a World Championships Swift has vowed not to let his position go anytime soon despite his attentions now turning to the roads.

"I will definitely continue doing both the road and the track up to the London Olympics - that is my objective," said Swift.
