British cyclist Laura Trott was royally surprised after winning her first individual gold medal.
She was winding down her press obligations, smiling ear-to-ear after winning the omnium Tuesday, when she was told that Prince William was here to meet 20-year-old.
"Who?" she asked, puzzled.
Then Trott went pale, her smile vanished and her jaw fell agape.
"He's here to meet me?" she said stunned.
As she was ushered off to meet the prince, Trott stopped to watch the closing laps of the men's keirin, jumping up and down to cheer teammate Chris Hoy's gold medal ride.
Trott may have had a second surprise. Prince Harry — the most eligible bachelor in Britain — was at the Velodrome on Tuesday, not his married brother Prince William, according to the palace.
