Australia Win Women's Team Pursuit


Australia Win Women's Team Pursuit

23rd August 2012: Australia have dominated day one of the UCI Junior Track World Championships in Invercargill, New Zealand, claiming medals in all four finals contested.

The 'baby Cyclones' claimed two gold, a silver and a bronze medal to kick off the Under-19 championships.

The men's and women's pursuit teams successfully defended their 2011 world titles with both claiming gold ahead of hometown rivals, New Zealand.

2011 world champions Georgia Baker and Taylah Jennings joined with debutant Kelsey Robson to post a world record time of 3.24.37 for the three kilometre distance, chopping a whopping two seconds off the previous mark ridden by Australia (Amy Cure, Michaela Anderson, Isabella King) at the 2010 world titles in Italy.

Baker said she was 'over the moon' to have clocked a world record and to come away with the rainbow jersey for the second year running.

“Words can’t describe how excited we are right now, we came out here and our main goal was to win gold and to know that all our hard work has paid off is an amazing feeling,” the Tasmanian said.

Australia qualified fastest heading into the trans-Tasman showdown against New Zealand, something which Baker said gave the girls a lot of confidence before the final.



“It was an advantage for us going last in qualifying because we could see how all the other teams went and make sure we qualified fastest. And when we got to the final we just completely smashed it,” the 17-year-old explained.

16-year-old Robson said she couldn’t believe what she had achieved.

“It’s been unreal. This morning I was shaking with nerves but now all of sudden here I am wearing a rainbow jersey, it’s pretty cool.”

Robson is the youngest member of the Australian squad and said she was a little overwhelmed by the credentials of her team mates.

“I felt a bit of pressure because I thought ‘these girls were able to do that last year I should be able to as well’, but also every time I had a problem I could look to them and they [Baker and Jennings] basically got me through,” the West Australian said.
