European Track Championships Day 3: Great Britain's Trott wins Scratch Race

Great Britain’s Laura Trott won the women’s Scratch Race during Day 3 of the European Track Championships held on Friday in Grenchen, Switzerland. It is her second gold medal so far, having been a member of her nation’s winning team pursuit squad the previous day.

Trott won the Scratch Race ahead of one of the world’s fastest sprinters, Kirsten Wild (Netherlands), while France’s Roxane Fournier picked up third place.

Great Britain didn’t perform as well in the men’s Points Race, as Oliver Wood was the top placed in 15th with only three points. Poland took top honours in the event with Wojciech Pszczolarski winning with a total of 24 points ahead of France’s Benjamin Thomas, who had 21 points, and Switzerland’s Claudio Imhof with 19.

The Netherlands dominated the men’s and women’s sprint competitions from start to finish with Elis Ligtlee and Jeffrey Hoogland winning the gold medals.

Ligtlee had the fastest qualifying time in the morning session and went on to win the event ahead of Anastasiia Voinova (Russia). Kristina Vogel (Germany) earned the bronze medal in the sprint against Virginie Cueff (France).

Likewise, Hoogland started the sprints with the fastest qualifying time, which was a sign of success to come. He went on to win the gold-medal round against Max Niederlag (Germany). The bronze went to Poland’s Damian Zielinski, who beat his fellow countryman Rafal Sarnecki.

The evening ended with the men’s Omnium round three, Elimination Race. The round went to France’s Thomas Boudat, who beat Italy’s Elia Viviani and Dutchman Tim Veldt.

The results of the third round were not enough to knock Russia’s Viktor Manakov out of the top ranked spot in the Omnium with only two rounds to go.

Dutch sprinters dominate morning session

Russia's Victor Manakov took the early lead in the men's Omnium after the first two rounds held on Friday at the European Track Championships in Switzerland. He opened the event with a second place in the Scratch Race, but took the Omnium lead after winning round two in the Individual Pursuit.

Manakov now leads with 78 points, while Scratch Races winner Raman Tsishkou from Belarus sits in second place with 66 points and Great Britain's Jonathan Dibben is in third, also with 66 points.

The men's Omnium will continue with the elimination race during the evening session.

Day 3 of the European Track Championships kicked off with the women's sprint qualifying rounds and the fastest time went to Dutch sprinter Elis Ligtlee, while in the men's sprint qualifying round the fastest time went to her compatriot Jeffrey Hoogland. The sprinters raced their way through the following heats, however, the semi finals and the finals will not be raced until the evening session when the winners will be decided.
