Day 2 Qualifying 

Thursday 24th March

Team Pursuit - British team qualify fastest

The British team qualified fastest with a time of 3 minutes 23.642 seconds ahead of the world record holders USA. Britain and USA will ride off for gold and silver later. In the fight for Bronze, New Zealand qualified third fastest ahead of the 2010 World Champions Australia. 

With a greater emphasis on endurance racing, the Team Pursuit qualifying was hotly tested. Sixteen teams were represented from across the globe. The change in the programme and the need to encourage more women into the sport has also opened up the opportunity for some riders to switch discipline from sprint to endurance and come out of retirement. Two such riders are; Jennie Reed (USA) former World Keirin champion and Clara Hughes notably one of the most experienced women in the field. At 39, Hughes took up the sport of cycling at the age of 17 and gave up the sport of speed skating for cycling for many years. She eventually return to the sport of speed skating at the age of 28, after achieving her success in the Atlanta Olympics.With her experience and endurance earned through cycling, Hughes would then go on to a successful career competing in the 3,000 m and 5,000 m. This would eventually lead her to medal in these long distance events at the Winter Olympics. In winning both Summer and Winter Olympic medals she is one of only five people to have won medals in both versions of the games, and is the only person ever to have won multiple medals in both

Team Sprint - Australians qualify fastest

Australian duo Anna Meares and Kaarle McCulloch cemented their place in the ride for Gold with a 33.342 second qualifying time. The time was not the fastest they have ever ridden, they hold the world record time of 32.923 seconds but it was enough to go for gold. Qualifying second fastest, was the British team of Victoria Pendleton and Jessica Varnish. They produced a 33.356 second ride, with Pendleton setting the second fastest time for her lap. In the chase for third and fourth place, China narrowly beat the French. Local Dutch favourites Willy Kanis and Yvonne Hijgenaar could only manage 7th fastest.
