Having already won Gold as part of the 4km Team Pursuit squad – along with Dani King, Elinor Barker, Katie Archibald and Joanna Rowsell – Trott finished the Omnium level with favourite Kirsten Wild of the Netherlands, but having a lower overall time from the Flying Lap, Individual Pursuit and 500m TT won the event on countback; Belgium’s Jolien d’Hoore took third place. Trott ?subsequently tweeted:  ‘A bit of a battle to say the least with Kirsten Wild who is on fire. Super happy to win gold, even if it was only by 0.4 of a second.’


Jason Kenny took Silver in the Keirin on the final day of action in Apeldoorn to add to his Bronze in the Men’s Sprint, bringing the GB medal haul to eight.
