Spain were vanquished by Rebecca James and Jess Varnish in the Women’s Team Sprint final to take GBís first Gold, followed by Laura Trott, Dani King and Elinor Barker taking the same colour over Australia in the Womenís Team Pursuit. Silver came courtesy of Jason Kenney, Ed Clancy and Philip Hindesí Menís Team Sprint.
