Filippo Ganna beat his previous Individual Pursuit World Record Friday in Berlin to defend his UCI Track World Championships title, setting a new best world mark of 04:01.934 in the qualifying round.

The 23-year-old Italian, who rides on the road for Team Ineos, went on to beat American Ashton Lambie by 04.173 in the finals to defend his rainbow jersey. Corentin Ermenault (France) beat Jonathan Milan (Italy) for bronze.

The women's Omnium was also decided on Friday, with Yumi Kajihara emerging victorious after four events, beating Letizia Paternoster (Italy) by 11 points and Daria Pikulik (Poland)  by 20.

The Japanese rider won the opening Scratch Race, was second in the Tempo Race, third in the Elimination Race and eighth in the closing Points Race, which Paternoster won.

Germany's Emma Hinze took top honours on the women's Sprint, cruising past Wai Sze Lee (China) in the semi-finals and then disposing of Russia's Anastasiia Voinova in two heats to take the gold. Lee beat Canada's Kelsey Mitchell for bronze.

The men decided two more rainbow jerseys Friday, with Dutchman Sam Ligtlee clocking the best time and the rainbow jersey in the 1km Time Trial and New Zealand's Corbin Strong winning the points race ahead of Sebastian Mora Vedri (Spain) and Roy Eefting (Netherlands).
