Olympic champ Vogel triumphs at Track Cycling Worlds

Australia defends its world title in men's team pursuit

Australia defends its world title in men's team pursuit

In a relatively young and inexperienced British team in Hong Kong, 23-year-old Katie Archibald was one of the more seasoned campaigners, and rode faultlessly in the morning's first two omnium events.

The third and penultimate event was the elimination race, where Archibald finished in fifth place, with Cure taking victory ahead of Kirsten Wild (Netherlands), moving herself up to a share of the lead with Archibald going into the final points race.

"I went out with fatigue".

"I just feel a bit stupid", Archibald said. "I was very close to done for".

'I had this one chance to focus on it, not that I would have changed yesterday for anything. "I just needed to keep grinding and recover for those sprints, and it came off in the end".

Probably the most popular medal victor was Hong Kong's Wai Sze Lee, who won the bronze in front of a jubilant home crowd.

Meyer, 29, was in front from almost halfway in the gruelling, 160-lap race, finishing with 76 points, ahead of Belgian Kenny De Ketele and Poland's Wojciech Pszczolarski, who both had 40.

Another Australian, Cameron Meyer, won his second gold of the worlds when he dominated the points race.

The points race featured eight sprints where points were awarded - five points for winning the sprint, while 20 points were available for gaining a lap on the field - and scores were added to the overall total. "We've started really well and hopefully there's more to come in the next few days".

"I was very scattered when that happened". "I had to collect my thoughts again".

It's Great Britain's third medal of the championships, and the first gold.

She missed last year's Track World Championships in London after falling off her motorbike, but returned in time to claim Olympic gold in Rio last August.

Australia also won silver through Samantha Morton in the women's pursuit, and bronze through Cure in the omnium and Kendall O'Brien in the men's pursuit.
