Twenty five riders started the sprint competition. 

Shuang Guo (China) was second fastest and showed her dominance.  

World Champion Vicki Pendleton (GBR) looked strong and qualified third fastest.

Comments 

Anna Meares (Australia)was very happy with her form in the first days of competition. “Qualifying went really well for me, the sprint match ups went just as well so it’s just a matter of roll the legs, head home and come back for a big semi,”  said Meares

“I wasn’t expecting a sub-11 today, and I don’t think my coach was expecting a sub-11 today. But it’s really good to see because we’ve worked very hard since worlds. We’ve got a big team that has been trying to iron out little creases, trying to get half a percentage here and two-tenths of a percent there and to be able to see in sixth months all those little percentages being added up and collating in a great time, It's promising for what could be possible in the next 18months,”  she added.

Meares discussed the challenges of racing 500m TT and the Sprint, “They’re two totally different ball games – I mean your 500 is your really low to mid range acceleration work and your sprinting, particularly your 200, is mid to high range acceleration work – I saw that in Delhi, my 200 was particularly good and my 500, particularly the first lap where that real low grueling sort of stuff has to come, it lagged a little bit as a result. I haven’t ridden a 500 since Delhi, I have no idea what I’m going to do. But that’s the best way to look at a 500 – you can’t put expectations out there.”
