Chloe Dygert Owen (United States) put on a display of complete domination in the women's individual pursuit, breaking the eight-year-old world record by two seconds and her nearest rivals by a lap en route to her fifth career world title on the track.

Dygert Owen qualified quickest, breaking her mentor Sarah Hammer's mark by two seconds and going over nine seconds quicker than Dutchwomen Annemiek van Vleuten to move onto the gold medal final. It was hardly a contest, with Van Vleuten lapped halfway through the race as Dygert Owen powered to another world record in 3:20.06.

Lisa Brennauer (Germany) and Kelly Catlin (USA) fought for the bronze medal in the finals in a far more evenly matched contest. Catlin was quickest out of the blocks, leading for the first lap before Brennauer surged ahead. The German kept a narrow lead for the next kilometre, but Catlin made a comeback in the second half.

Over the final 1500m, Catlin steadily nudged her advantage out, ending the race with a 1.262 margin of victory to secure the bronze medal.

"We had a little faster goal and I was really hoping to get that, but coming away with a little faster than my ride this morning is still great. I'm excited and ready to walk away to the next race to try and go faster," Dygert Owen said.

"It's really special, any time you can be in the rainbow stripes it's quite an honour. To be here again on the podium with another USA member is really awesome."

Men's Omnium

Poland's Szymon Sajnok claimed the victory in the men's Omnium, topping Dutch favourite Jan van Schip by a four-point margin after four events.

Simone Consonni (Italy) took the bronze medal a week after racing 'opening weekend' with his UAE Team Emirates road team.

Van Schip came out swinging in the opening Scratch race, winning the event over Japan's Eiya Hashimoto and Dan Holloway (USA). But in the Tempo race, Sajnok began his steady climb up the rankings, coming second to Portugal's Ivo Oliveira of Hagens Berman Axeon, with Team WIGGINS' Campbell Stewart (New Zealand) in third.

But the Elimination race proved to be critical, as Oliveira made a gaffe and was eliminated second and plummeted down the standings. Holloway and Stewart similarly slipped away, while Consonni went all in to survive until there were only three left, then had nothing more to give.

That left Van Schip against Sajnok, and the Dutchman had nothing left for the sprint after spending much of the race on the front.

Van Schip's fortunes did not improve in the points race, where he suffered a crash and missed out on earning points in the final sprint. The four points Sajnok claimed proved to be the winning margin.

Women's Madison

Great Britain's Katie Archibald and Emily Nelson netted gold in the women's Madison, taking out eight of the 12 sprints to finish with a massive 15 point margin of victory over Kirsten Wild and Amy Pieters (Netherlands).

Letizia Paternoster and Maria Giulia Confalonieri (Italy) were third.

Defending champion Jolien D'Hoore, missing injured teammate Lotte Kopecky (Belgium), and partner Shari Bossuyt lost two laps and were never a factor.
