Jason Kenny takes sprint silver medal on final night of Track World Cup (video)

Jason Kenny added to his team sprint gold medal on an otherwise quiet final day for Great Britain at the Track World Cup in Mexico

Great Britain sprinter Jason Kenny took a silver medal in the sprint discipline on the final day of the opening round of the UCI Track World Cup series in Guadalajara, Mexico, on Sunday.

Kenny was narrowly beaten by Matthew Glaetzer of Australia in the sprint final to claim his second medal of the event after he, Philip Hindes and Callum Skinner won the team sprint for Great Britain on Saturday.

It was an otherwise quiet final day for Great Britain in Mexico, with Katie Archibald and Jon Dibben finishing 17th and 19th overall in the revised Omnium competition. Jolien D'Hoore took gold for Belgium in the women's event, with Lucas Liss of Germany winning the men's.

Jess Varnish did not progress further than the first round in the women's keirin, which was won by Guo Shuang of China.

Great Britain ended the round in second spot in the medal table behind Australia. GB took gold in the men's team sprint and women's team pursuit, and silver in the men's team pursuit and men's sprint.

Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
