After Elinor Barker took silver in the women's scratch race on the opening day, Chris Latham delivered Great Britain's second medal of the Track World Championships 2017 in Hong Kong with bronze in the men's race.
The 23-year-old rode conservatively in what was a cagey and tactical race, with the only rider able to gain a significant advantage being Adrian Teklinski (Poland) who attacked with seven laps to go.
Teklinski quickly opened more than half a lap, holding on to take gold, with silver going to Germany's Lucas Liss, and Latham delivering a powerful finishing burst for bronze.
There was less success for Britain's two young team pursuit squads, with neither the men nor the women able to claim a medal.
The men's team came closest, with the foursome of Steven Burke, Kian Emadi, Mark Stewart and Ollie Wood leading for much of the four kilometre race, before dropping back in the final 1,000m to finish in a time of 3-58.566, around a second-and-a-half behind Italy.

In the final, glory went to Australia who defeated New Zealand to successfully defend the title that they won in London 12 months ago.
Having finished fifth in qualifying on Wednesday, the women's team pursuit squad were not in the hunt for a ride in the final, instead needing to finish as one of the four fastest teams to be in with a shot at bronze.

Elinor Barker, Emily Nelson, Manon Lloyd and Ellie Dickinson set a time of 4-21.681, catching Poland in their heat, but were once again pushed into fifth place, meaning they finished out of the medals.
The USA faced off against Australia in the final with the American's coming away with the gold by a narrow 0.417 seconds. New Zealand won the third place ride-off against Italy besting them by a clear nearly five seconds.
There was also no representation for Great Britain in the men's keirin final after 20-year-old Joe Truman, who ran out of gas after attacking early in his heat, and went on to claim eighth place overall after placing second in the minor final.
Azizulhasni Awang of Malaysia finally took a gold medal having previously claimed two silvers and two bronzes in previous World Championships beating Fabian Zapata of Colombia with Tomas Babek (Czech Republic) third.
