Colombia's Fernando Gaviria secured the world title in the men’s omnium upon its conclusion in the points race during Day 4 at the UCI Track World Championships in Paris on Saturday. The 20-year-old secured a total of 205 points to win the title over the six rounds, beating Australia’s Glenn O’Shea by 15 points and Italy’s Elia Viviani by 24 points.

Gaviria went into the final three rounds leading the omnium after placing third in the scratch race and second in the individual pursuit rounds. He also placed third in the elimination race, fourth in the time trial, eighth in the flying lap and won the points race, securing the world title.

Dutch rider Kirsten Wild won the world title in the women’s scratch race beating Australia’s Amy Cure and Canada’s Allison Beveridge. The race wasn’t without controversy as French rider Pascale Jeuland was relegated to last place for moving into another rider’s lane during the final sprint.

In the men’s individual pursuit, Switzerland’s Stefan Kueng won the world title clocking a winning time of 4:18.915, beating silver medallist Jack Bobridge from Australia and bronze medallist Julien Morice from France.

Bobridge had the fastest qualifying time during the morning session, timed at 4:16.219 and Kueng had the second fastest time at 4:17.183. Bobridge started the finals fast but lost ground during the last half of the 4,000 metre event, which gave Kueng the opportunity to make back time on the Australian and win the world title.

Germany’s Kristina Vogel won the world title in the women’s sprint. She won the gold-medal round against Dutch rider Elis Ligtlee. China’s Tianshi Zhong won the bronze medal after beating her opponent Stephanie Morton from Australia in the bronze-medal round.

The women’s omnium kicked off with the scratch race where Lithuania’s Ausrine Trebaite won the round ahead of Denmark’s Amalie Dideriksen and Ireland’s Caroline Ryan. Great Britain’s Laura Trott led an exciting second round, taking the top spot in the individual pursuit ahead of Australia’s Annette Edmondson and the Netherland’s Kirsten Wild.

The women’s omnium continued with the elimination race, which was the final race of the evening on Day 4 of the World Championships. Trott won the event ahead of Wild and Jolien D’Hoore. Wild is currently leading the women’s omnium after the first three rounds. The event will resume with the time trial, flying lap and the points race on Sunday.
