She was taken from the venue by ambulance, with initial concern for an injury to her hip. She was said to have been knocked out for a few seconds, but was alert as she left the stadium.
The crash occurred towards the end of the race, after the derny had left the track. A clash of wheels with Svetlana Grankowskaja sent Meares face down onto the trackside.
