Great Britain’s men’s team sprint trio defeated France to win GB’s third gold of the Games in the first track cycling final in Beijing. Jamie Staff, Jason Kenny and Chris Hoy had three superb rides, with a winning time of 43.128 seconds in the final. They had finished second to France at the World Championships earlier this year but always looked in control to win the Olympic final by 0.523secs. Germany defeated Australia by 0.008secs to take the bronze medal.
Didn’t I say last last week that my money was on them??!!
