OLYMPICS: MEN’S TEAM PURSUIT


Okay I’ve been on a camping trip over the weekend so I was barely able to watch any more of the Olympic track cycling events. With the last few medals being awarded today, I’ll just post some quick recaps…

Great Britain’s Team Pursuit squad of Ed Clancy, Geraint Thomas, Steven Burke and Peter Kennaugh broke their own World Record timing twice — once in qualifying and then again in the final heat against Australia. The new record stands at 3:51.659 (formerly 3:53.295 set by Great Britain at World Championships earlier this year).

GOLD — Great Britain (Edward Clancy / Geraint Thomas / Steven Burke / Peter Kennaugh)
SILVER — Australia (Jack Bobridge / Glenn O’Shea / Rohan Dennis / Michael Hepburn)
BRONZE — New Zealand (Sam Bewley / Marc Ryan / Jesse Sergent / Aaron Gate)
