Silver – Carlin
Bronze – Schmid

Webster accelerates high off the banking and goes early. Carlin has a big gap to make up, but once he gets in the draft he closes quickly.

Off the final bend Carlin comes home strong, but left his run a little late. So close, but Webster goes 2-0 and takes Gold.

Webster loves to slow the pace up.

Almost enticing Carlin to come to the front.

Webster 1-0.

Schmid leads out, Sahrom leaves his run late to accelerate, but he gets in the wheel and attempts to come around Schmid off the last bend but couldn’t do it.

Bronze to Schmid.

Off to a break now for some medal ceremonies.

Webster goes high in the final bend before the bell.

He has the momentum to go side by side with Carlin around the first turn, then kick past him before the final bend to take an easy win.

Carlin takes the lead first. Webster stalking him. 2 to go.

Katy Marchant the last two go.

Highly experienced. Solid sprinter. Can she better the time of both Aussies?

McCulloch beats Morton!

0.36 in it.

McCulloch was always going to go out hard early, she was 0.5 up after 125 metres, but faded in the last lap but just held on over her compatriot.

McCulloch up next. I think she will be top 3. Can she beat Morton?

Good ride, but it could have been quicker.

No aero bars as well. Interesting.
