Thanks Scott, off we go again. The 3m springboard final is well underway for the men, and the velodrome is back in action. Let’s start with an update from Kieran Pender who is currently at the latter.
Australia’s women’s team pursuit squad have hit back after a sluggish time yesterday to beat New Zealand in the first round on day two of the Tokyo 2020 track cycling action. The team’s time of 4:09.992 would have broken the previous world record, but the mark had already been smashed yesterday by Germany on Monday with 4:07.307. Australia’s seventh placing in qualifying yesterday means they are no longer in gold medal contention, but can race for bronze if their time just now is in the top two times (excluding the two teams that race for gold). They will be keeping their fingers crossed with the other races up now.
And that is all from me. Geoff Lemon will take over from here. Thanks for your company on an eventful day. Let’s do it again tomorrow.
