European Championships: French men, Italian women take team pursuit titles

Kirsten Wild wins elimination race gold

Italy beat Great Britain to gold in the women’s team pursuit on day 2 of the Track European Championships, while France soared to the top of the medal table in Berlin.

The British men had missed out on an opportunity for a medal after Andy Tennant crashed on the final lap of their qualifying effort. However, the women’s team set up a match-up with a strong looking Italian line-up after beating Germany in round 1. Italy proved much too quick for the British squad, going more than three seconds quicker in the finals.

Italy was edged out by the French in the men’s team pursuit, with the French just two tenths quicker over the four kilometres. The French team dominated the top step of the podium on day two with further gold medals in the men’s scratch race and team sprint.

Russia came out on top in the women’s sprint with Anastasiia Voinova and Daria Shmeleva beating Germany’s Miriam Welte and Kristina Vogel. Kirsten Wild scored the Netherlands’ gold medal of the competition with victory ahead of Evgenia Augustinas (Russia) in the elimination race.
