David Ashdown's sports picture diary: Beijing Olympics - Velodrome

David Ashdown was in Beijing covering the 2008 Olympic Games

This picture of British cyclist Victoria Pendelton was taken at the Laoshan Velodrome. She was cooling down after a practice session when I spotted her reflection in the mirror - it had this look as if she was coming out of water. I positioned myself ready for her to come round again and was able to get this image. Two Pendelton's are better than one I thought!

Picture taken on a Nikon D3, 170mm lens, aperture F2.8, shutter speed 1/400th of a second
