Australia and Great Britain top the medals table after day two of the UCI Track World Cup in Berlin. Both countries have two golds and two silvers apiece, with Katie Archibald's (Great Britain) domination of the women's Omnium among the highlights of the day's racing. Meanwhile, Australia's Stephanie Morton took the women's Sprint gold with a race to spare.

Elsewhere, Danes, Lasse Norman Hansen and Casper Von Folsach took gold in the men's Madison, beating out Great Britain's pairing of Mark Stewart and Oliver Wood. The final day of racing will see five more golds up for grabs, with the men's Sprint and Omnium, as well as the women's Keirin, 500m TT and Madison to be decided.

Katie Archibald dominates in the women's Omnium

The day's afternoon session saw the Brit get off to a strong start, soaring to the top of the leader board after winning the opening two events, the scratch race and the tempo race. She took an eight-point lead over Italy's Letizia Paternoster into the evening session, with Jennifer Valente (USA) four points further back.

Archibald won the evening's elimination race too, enjoying a 16-point lead over Paternoster and Valente heading into the points race. Paternoster took the win there, which was enough for 118 points and silver, but not enough to overhaul the British rider, who prevailed with 132 points. Valente took bronze with 116 points.

Gold for Australia's Stephanie Morton in the women's Sprint

Over in the women's Sprint, Stephanie Morton (Australia) was by far the fastest in the afternoon's qualifying session, putting in a time of 10.484 to beat her nearest competitor by two-tenths of a second and make it to the semi-final comfortably

Meanwhile, Russia would have two opportunities to reach the final with Daria Shmeleva up against Morton and Anastasiia Voinova racing Ukraine's Olena Starikova.

It was Morton and Voinova who would prevail in the semis, leaving Starikova to pip Shmelev to the line in a deciding race for the bronze medal. Morton, however, only needed two races to dispatch Voinova, sealing Australia's second gold of the meet.

Beat Cycling Club in the medals with Buchli and Bos

The afternoon saw disappointment for Great Britain as Jason Kenny was knocked out of the Keirin in the opening round. Matthew Glaetzer (Australia) and Aziz Awang (Malaysia) were among the heat winner in round one, and would be among the favourites to medal in the final.

Both made it through round two unscathed, but so did Dutchman Matthijs Buchli (Beat Cycling Club), who was the class of the field in the final. He won by a clear bike length, with Glaetzer just edging out Awang for silver.

There was another medal to come for Beat Cycling Club too, as Theo Bos took bronze in the men's 1km TT. His time of 1:00:868 was strong, but two-tenths slower than silver medallist Quentin Lafargue of France. Joachim Eilers (Germany) took gold, with a time of 1:0:645, a miniscule 0.015 ahead of the Frenchman.

British silver behind Denmark in the Madison

The Danish duo of Lasse Norman Hansen and Casper Von Folsach were untouchable in the men's Madison, following up their wins in the first two rounds of the UCI Track World Cup in France and Canada with another here. Their 44-point haul beat Great Britain's Mark Stewart and Oliver Wood's 30 points into second place, while Germany's Roger Kluge and Theo Reinhardt took bronze with 24 points.
