Track Day 5 - Trott, sits first in Omnium, Pendleton, Meares, Guo, Vogel in sprint finals

London 2012, Velodrome

 

Race Writeup

Omnium

Great Britain's Laura Trott is one of the favourites for the women's omnium which made its Olympic debut at the London Velodrome. Trott did not disappoint the home crowd either, winning two of the first three events. Trott shares top spot with Sarah Hammer (USA). The pair have a commanding lead 5 points ahead of Annette Edmonson (AUS) and six points ahead of Canadian Tara Whitten.

Comprising six events over two days of racing, the Omnium blends a mix of endurance and sprint events.

Sometimes described as the decathlon of cycling, points are awarded based on an athlete's position in each race: one point for finishing first, two points for second and so on. At the end of the event the points are tallied and the athlete with the fewest points wins the gold.
