OLYMPICS: MEN’S OMNIUM


This brand new Olympic event awards the most well-rounded track racer — or as Phil Liggett puts it, the “jack of all trades and master of none”. Though I hate that some of the greatest track events were removed from the Olympics such as the Kilo and the Individual Pursuit, I do enjoy the Omnium.

The winner of the very first Olympic Gold in the Omnium is Denmark’s Lasse Norman Hansen. It was a close match as Hansen was tied for first place with France’s Bryan Coquard and Italy’s Elia Viviani going into the last event. In the end, Hansen put down the second fastest Kilo time and took the Gold.

GOLD — Denmark (Lasse Norman Hansen)
SILVER — France (Bryan Coquard)
BRONZE — Great Britain (Edward Clancy)
