China takes two golds on day 1

Zach Bell wins points race for Canada

The host country of the UCI Track Cycling World Cup final in Beijing, China, took a surprise two gold medals on the first day of competition at the Laoshan Olympic velodrome. First winner of the night was Olympic bronze medalist Shuang Guo, who upset Australian Anna Meares in the gold medal final by taking back-to-back heats.

Guo's compatriot Junhong Lin added a bronze to the women's success in an uncontested final after Belarus rider Olga Panarina was disqualified in the semifinal.

With the win Guo also secured the overall World Cup win in the competition by four points over Meares.

The Chinese men then went on to stun the Australian Team Jayco in the men's team sprint final after setting the fastest time to qualify for the gold medal round. France took the bronze with ease over the Russian Moscow team.

In the women's scratch race it was Vera Koedooder of the Netherlands who claimed gold over Ausrine Trebaite (Lithuania) and world cup leader Evgeniya Romanyuta (Russia). The finish secured the World Cup victory for Romanyuta.

New Zealander Alison Shanks took the women's individual pursuit win with ease, besting Lithuania's Vilija Sereikaite by seven seconds. Canadian Tara Whitten took the bronze over Australia's Sarah Kent.

Zach Bell added to Canada's medal tally with a commanding win in the men's points race after being the only rider to take two laps out of the field.  Hong Kong's Kwok Ho Ting was second ahead of Tom Scully (New Zealand).

In the men's individual pursuit, Ukrainian Vitaly Shchedov cemented the World Cup win with a victory over Australian Michael Hepburn, with Valery Kaikov of Russia in third.
