Laura Trott responds to claims her sister is 'jealous' of Olympic success

Published 1 Comments

After Laura Trott won her second gold medal at the Rio Olympics, you would think her family and friends would be delighted for her success.

However, according to social media, her sister Emma Trott came across as jealous and unhappy for her sister following her gold medal success in the Women's omnium.

Emma was doing an interview on 'Good Morning Britain', and spoke about her sister's success and how she is now Great Britain's most decorated female in Olympics history.

Now living in New Zealand, Emma wasn't able to watch her sister compete in Rio because she was busy at work, stating how she's self-employed and how she needs to work to make her money.

The rest of the interview did make for rather awkward viewing, with many people on social media calling her jealous of her sister, especially after she claimed Laura had worked no harder than others, and that she can't believe how she's won so many medals at Olympic level.

However, Laura has since taken to her official Twitter account to rubbish those claims, stating that her sister is her biggest fan and has been throughout her career.

Laura sent out four tweets regarding the whole saga, and put to bed the claims that her sister wasn't supporting her or was jealous of her success.

Laura's win in the omnium was her second gold medal at the Rio Olympics, adding to her gold in the Women's team pursuit.

Her day was made even better when her fiance Jason Kenny won gold in the Men's keirin, adding to his gold from the Men's sprint and the Men's team sprint.
