Hoy Battles Back to Gold

Anyone who had written Sir Chris Hoy off after a rocky few days in Australia at the Track Cycling World Championships will have done so prematurely – as the 36-year-old deified naysayer to take Gold in the Keirin, an event that he has made very much his own during a long and distinguished career. Even by the Scot’s usual standards, this was a blistering final attempt that saw him virtually elbow past New Zealand’s Simon van Velthooven and Geremany’s Maximilian Levy to take the crown – a huge boost ahead of the London 2012 Games.


Hoy’s success takes the GB tally to five Golds ahead of second place Australia’s three.
