Post Race Comments 

Shuang Guo (China) was very pleased with the teams performance in the sprint. “We are very happy to have Gold. Finally we are leading this competition. I think we can keep this going and go faster,” said Guo.

Silver medalist, Vicki Pendleton (Great Britain), was very happy to be racing again in Melbourne. “It is good to be back,” said Pendleton.

Reflecting on her poor start, Pendelton added, “I had a really crappy start in the final. I was let go a little too early and I had to balance myself then start which meant I had to chase Jess [Varmish]. I am not experienced enough toput my hand up and show that I wasn’t ready. I will learn that for next time.”

“It is really important for us to be in the top 5 European nation for the Olympics. With Jess being a fairly new member fo the team  and usbeinga new partnership, I think we did really well,” she added.
