Great Britain's Laura Trott continued her remarkable run of form over the last couple of years by taking gold in the women's omnium at the 2012 Track World Championships in Melbourne today. It was the 19-year-old's second gold of the championships, having been part of the British team that took gold and lowered the world record in the women's team pursuit on Thursday.

Trott led the overall standings overnight, having performed consistently across the three session one events. And she never looked in any danger on the final day after securing third place in the initial individual pursuit. A 13th place finish in the scratch race was slightly disappointing but victory in the final event - the time trial - won her the gold medal and the kudos of wearing the rainbow jersey as world champion.

"I think I'm setting myself up well for London," Trott told BBC Sport. "To come here and win the omnium is massive for me. Me and my coach have been doing a lot of work, watching back the races that I haven't done so well in, and it's paid off."

Session One report

Australia's Annette Edmondson made the perfect start in the women's omnium, taking out the flying 200m sprint in 14.377 ahead of Great Britain's Laura Trott (14.391) and China's Huang Li (14.427).

Lisa Brennauer of Germany narrowly took out the points race with 23 points ahead of Jarmila Machacovo (CZE, 22pts) and Angie Gonzalez Garcia (VEN, 21pts). The trio took a lap with Japan's Kanako Kase who finished fourth.

In the elimination, Great Britain's Laura Trott had too much left in the final showdown with Russian Evgenia Romanyuta.

After the first three events, Edmondson and Trott sit at the top of the overall standings with 11 points.
