Omnium bronze for Hayter at track world championships

Ethan Hayter put in a solid omnium performance but slipped off the top spot in the final points race as New Zealand's Campbell Steward took a late lap and with it the gold medal.

Ethan Hayter enhanced his position as GB's omnium rider for the 2020 Olympics with a good set of rides and a bronze medal today.

Hayter, the 2018 European omnium champion, is one of four riders vying for the ride. A worlds medal will do his chances no harm, but he came off the track knowing it could have been gold.
