Team Sprint - Australian pair of Anna Meares and Kaarle McCulloch set the pace for all to follow.

 

Race Writeup

Final

The Australian pairing of Anna Meares and fellow World Champion Kaarle McCulloch claimed gold in the team sprint.

The 26 year old Queenslander then joined 21 year old Sydney rider McCulloch for the team sprint with the pair wearing the rainbow stripes of reigning World Champions.

They posted the fastest time in qualifying (33.363sec) to set up a gold medal ride against Dutch pair Yvonne Hijgenaar and Willy Kanis who were six tenths off the Australian pace in 33.949sec in qualifying.

In the medal round Meares was the only rider to post a sub-19 second first lap clocking 18.754sec and giving McCulloch a perfect platform to bring home the win with a final time of 33.653sec, half a second better than the Dutch (34.014sec). Germany defeated Great Britain for the bronze medal.

Post Race Comments 

Anna Meares and Kaarle Mcculloch (AUS) blew the competition away again setting the fastest time in the Team Sprint.

“I've been struggling a bit with sickness which has affected my preparation so I’m really pleased we got the win,” said McCulloch.

“It’s been great but I’ve done a lot of work to get here," Meares said. "I wanted to start the season well and I've done that for sure."
