Thu, 23 Aug 2012 9:11a.m.
New Zealand track cyclists claimed three silver medals on the opening night of the junior world championships in Invercargill.
Both men's and women's pursuit teams as well as the women's sprint duo stood on the podium at Stadium Southland Velodrome, in a finals session on Wednesday which produced four junior world records.
The men's pursuit team of Dylan Kennett, Liam Aitcheson, Hayden McCormick and Hamish Schreurs were edged out by defending champions Australia in the gold medal ride by less than two seconds.
Australia were also too good for the New Zealand women's pursuit team of Cassie Cameron, Alysha Keith and Racquel Sheath, clocking a world record time of three minutes 24:372 seconds in the final.
Paige Paterson and Victoria Steel grabbed silver in the women's sprint team final, well beaten by Russian pair Daria Shmeleva and Lidia Pluzhnikova, who also entered the record books with their blistering 34:155sec time. NZN
