achieved the double. “I
felt good today, I really wanted this, I was focused and kept it simple.”
Anna Meares (AUS) chatted after her medal winning ride. "That was tough I got up on the line and the suit felt tight and I was dizzy and I said to Martin 'Marv I can't see straight'," Meares said. "I was shaking and he said 'just remember she's feeling as bad as you' which was a good point. We even left the same gear on [bicycle gearing] because we didn't even have time to change it and you know what - it came down to who had a bit left in the legs and luckily it was me and now I've got two bronze medals and a gold."
