Happy with silver after beating heart condition

Hayden Roulston, the Olympic silver medal-winning cyclist, says he felt good on the track as he matched the eventual winner pedal-for-pedal.

But in the second half of the men's individual pursuit last night, Britain's Bradley Wiggins rode away with the gold and despite digging deep, Roulston could not catch him.

Roulston says he is very happy with his silver medal, having fought a heart condition to get to the Olympics.
