Gold and silver for Great Britain on day four of track worlds

Archibald and Nelson dominate the women’s Madison while young Jack Carlin rounds out an impressive week with another silver.

Katie Archibald and Emily Nelson dominated the women’s Madison to run out comfortable winners at the end of the 120 lap race. The pair won eight sprints in a row to build a big lead over the Netherlands who had no answer to the pair’s speed.

For Archibald it was a return to form after she pulled out of the women’s omnium yesterday, while for Nelson it was a first senior world title. “It’s pretty amazing. It’s going to take a while for that to sink in.” Nelson said. “It was a really hard race and we led for pretty much all of it. It was about trying to keep hold of that lead and make sure no laps went.”
