Kristin Armstrong

She may have hung up her competitive wheels, but cyclist Kristin Armstrong will still be very involved in the sport she loves. The Olympic gold medalist and World Champion talks with host Marcia Franklin about her winning career and what's next.

Armstrong, 36, won a gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics in the cycling time trial, the first time since 1984 that an American woman had stood atop the podium in that event. In 2009, she captured another gold medal in the UCI Road World Championships time trial event. She also won a gold medal in that event in 2006. From 2004-2007 she was the U.S. National Champion in the Women's Time Trial event, and in 2006 was also the U.S. National Champion in the Women's Road Race.

Armstrong has officially retired from the sport, with plans to start a family and teach women about cycling and proper nutrition. She will talk with Franklin about those issues, what it was like to train for and win her recent medals, and take questions from the viewing audience.
