A cruel snub or just sour grapes? Cyclist Wendy Houvenaghel is furious at being denied her big chance of a gold medal.


Northern Ireland has been robbed of an Olympics gold. So claims an angry Wendy Houvenaghel. The cycling star is angry with her Team GBNI bosses and team-mates, after not being picked to compete.

The team broke the world record and won gold.

But because Wendy didn't ride in any of the rounds, she missed out on a coveted medal.

Stormont Sports Minister Carál Ní Chuilín voiced her support last night saying on Twitter that she "has a right to feel robbed".

Do you agree? Has Wendy Houvenaghel been badly treated?
