Australia's Josephine Tomic gave the team in green and gold a huge boost in their bid to top the medal table at these championships by winning the women's Omnium on Saturday.

Tomic's was Australia's third gold of the week, and gave them a great chance of edging out the British and French at the head of the table.

Britain's Anna Blyth did well in her favoured sprint events, but struggled in the scratch race, although she looked a lot better in the second bunch race, the points race.

The Omnium consists of five events, with riders scoring the same number of poinst as their finishing position in each race. So, five first places would give a final score of five points. Five second places would give a score of 10 points. Lowest points total wins.
