An inspiring story. I wish him luck and success.

But of course, the journalist is just using words in their vocabulary, not really knowing how to describe a strong track cyclist.

So, FWIW, it all depends on your reference point. One could argue that the astronaut is traveling about 5 miles/second when he is pedaling at the end of this video.
