China wins men's and women's sprint gold

On the fifth and final day of track competition at the Asian Games, host nation China added to its medal tally with victories in both the men's and women's sprint competition

Lei Zhang (China) bested Japan's Tsubasa Kitatsuru 2-0 in the men's gold medal round while Yudai Nitta (Japan) topped Azizulhasni Awang (Malaysia) in straight heats to claim bronze.

China earned gold and silver in the women's sprint with Shuang Guo outsprinting teammate Junhong Lin in straight heats to win the championship. The bronze medal was won by Wai Sze Lee (Hong Kong, China) who dispatched Wongyeong Kim (Korea).

The men's 30km points race gold medal was won by Vladimir Tuychiev (Uzbekistan) with Kam Po Wong (Hong Kong, China) and Mehdi Sohrabi (Iran) claiming silver and bronze respectively.

The final event of the day was the men's keirin, in which Malaysia's Azizulhasni Awang and Josiah Ng finished 1-2. The bronze medal was earned by China's Miao Zhang.

For the second straight day, a crash marred a gold medal final as sprint champion Lei Zhang (China) and Mohammad Parash (Iran) crashed heavily in the men's keirin final. Parash left the track in a neck brace for further examination while Zhang eventually walked off the track apparently suffering no serious injuries.

Multiple crashes occurred in the previous day's women's points race final, including a five-rider accident that involved eventual silver medalist Wan Yiu Wong (Hong Kong, China).
