THIS time Bradley Wiggins WILL get an honour from the City of Westminster four years after a half-hearted attempt to give him the borough's 'keys' came to nothing.
Cllr Paul Dimoldenberg will put a motion on the council meeting for October 29 that needs a simple show of hands to award the Maida Vale Olympic gold-winning cyclist the freedom of his neck of the woods.
The man who lived, went to school, and first got on a bike around W9, spends most of his time close to the country's only purpose-built velodrome in Manchester with his wife and children.
But Dimoldenberg reckons the least the council can do is award its favourite sporting son some sort of gong for having won three Olympic golds, a silver and two bronzes bronze over three separate Olympics.
"Bradley should be recognised in the borough where he grew up, and where his mother lives and works," Dimoldenberg said.
"Awarding him the Freedom of Westminster would send a very strong signal to young people in Westminster that sporting achievement is worth striving for."
