Theo Bos WR

There was some spectacular racing on the fast Moscow track on the second day of the World Cup on Saturday, as Holland?s Theo Bos set a new flying 200 metre world record of 9.772 seconds and the pursuit team won gold in 4-03.

Disappointed with his time of 9.982 in the sprint qualifying round, the powerful Dutchman had another go between sprints and smashed Curt Harnett?s 1995 record set in Bogota, Colombia. Bos went on to win the sprint competition, beating Stefan Nimke of German, 2-0 in the final. Craig Mclean finished by beating Maximilian Levy of Germany 2-0 in the bronze-medal ride-off.
