Cycling: Wiggins gets golden chance

posted in: News | 1

Sir Bradley Wiggins’s hopes of winning Commonwealth Games gold in the men’s team pursuit were dashed by a brilliant performance from Australia in the final in Glasgow.
The English quartet of Wiggins, Ed Clancy, Steven Burke and Andy Tennant fell behind early in the 4km, 16-lap gold-medal race and were unable to regain parity.
They were 1.4 seconds down after the first 1km, 2.8 seconds adrift after 3km and ended up crossing the finish line more than five seconds behind the reigning world champions.
Australia’s superb time of 3min 54.851sec was a new Commonwealth Games record, and came despite losing one of their four men after just over half-distance.
The result means Wiggins now has four Commonwealth silver medals to his name, but still no gold.
