    Going to be a duel between Georgia Taylor-Brown & Flora Duffy, others are well back going for bronze.

    Turned out very easy for Flora Duffy.

      Duffy as imperious as ever. We can claim it as a bit of an English medal - both her parents are English and she went to school in Devon! Looks like the conditions got to GT-B a bit, she must be getting tired at being second to Flora all the time.

      Pleased for Beth Potter to get on the podium. She's had a solid season and this is just rewards for that.

      Even more pleased that I managed to get both podiums spot on! (yes, i do predictions for almost every large sporting event these days!)

            Individual pursuiting, excellent. Has been canned from the OG.

            And you thought athletics commentary was bad……..

            I read on a rugby forum that a commentator on the women’s sevens reckoned that one of the Kiwi players would take down SAFP in a foot race! Quite enjoyed pointing out that we think Jonny May is a jet heeled male winger and that SAFP has equalled or bettered his best 100m time 10 times. A female rugby player wouldn’t even be in the same postcode.

              That’s quite possible. Rugby, esp sevens, is huge there, athletics just isn’t. But generally, what looks electric on a rugby field would look pretty pedestrian on a track.

              I remember Nigel Walker switching to rugby after missing the 1992 Olympic team in the 110H. He ended up playing on the wing for Wales. I think at this time he was considered the fastest player in World Rugby but was probably at this time at best about a 10.6/10.7 100m runner.

              Definitely more likely in sevens where out and out speed is obv more useful. Carlin Isles (US 7s player) has clocked 10.15 apparently - https://www.worldathletics.org/athle...isles-14241582

              There's definitely a bunch of NFL players who had the potential to be decent track athletes. I suspect that there were a few rugby players out there who might have been the same had they stayed with athletics rather than rugby. But having the potential at 18/19 is very different obviously from actually being able to do it now!

            Crazy thing is that there is an excellent results site, but for some reason it is not linked to from the regular webpage!

            NZ have turned up in a big way at the velodrome. They were always going to be good but they've been even better than that thus far, if that makes any sense?

                Trinidad & Tobago don’t win many medals outside athletics, but were dominant in the keirin today.

                  Nicolas Paul has been threatening this for a while. He could come away from these games with 3 golds (the individual sprint and kilo).

                It's not looking great for the English cyclists in the velodrome, it has to be said.

                  It's not a vintage England team, frankly. We've lost a lot of the old guard to retirement and there's a generation of strong English cyclists that are skipping the track and going straight out onto the roads/mountain bikes.

                  A lot of the best British track riders right now are Welsh/Scottish. Katie Archibald would have been contending for a bunch of medals but lost her battle to be fit for the games.

                Only just seen Joe Truman's crash. That was one of the worst I've seen on the track in a good while. Reminder how dangerous that sport can be.

                  Ben Proud did substantially better judging that 50 fly final than he did at the WC last month.

                    And silver for Imogen Clark in the 50m breaststroke. A good evening in the pool.

                    We are definitely seeing that a good lot of people have been targetting the CWG over the Worlds.

                  Yep. Those guys go at some serious speeds and nothing Truman could have done about that, looks like he was probably out cold for a little while. It’s a dangerous game whether in the velodrome or outside. The women have been falling off all over the place in the Tour de Frances Femmes - there was a 50 rider pile up the other day.

                    I'm more used to seeing the really bad crashes on the road (Jakobsen etc) and obviously there's a death every now and again (mostly in training crashes when a car hits them but occasionally in a race - Fabio Casartelli springs to mind).

                    The track has less things for them to hit so often is less bad but there's a few famous ones - Aziz Awang getting a huge shard of wood straight through his leg in Manchester sticks in the memory because I was in the building for it!

                  Measure of revenge for Duncan Scott there over Tom Dean. GBs depth at 200m free is scary though.
