Two golds for Great Britain at junior track worlds

Emily Nelson, Junior track world championships

Great Britain's riders bounced back on day two of the junior track world championships winning gold in the women's team pursuit and 500m time trial.

Riding the new four kilometre format team pursuit the junior women set two national records on their way to gold. Hayley Jones, Amy Hill, Emily Nelson and Emily Kay convincingly beat Russia in the gold final with a time of 4:36.147 minutes. They now hold the British national record (not the world record as we initially reported) as Britain's senior national squad is yet to ride the new distance in competition.
