    Kristin Armstrong’s journey to a second consecutive cycling time-trial title wasn’t easy, but in the end, it turned out beautifully. Following her triumph in Beijing, Armstrong was at a transition point in her life. She was ready to start a family, which she did shortly after.

The now 38 year-old Armstrong, who normally hides her emotions well, was noticeably overjoyed as her life came full circle.
