Gold for Joanna Rowsell in Pursuit


Gold for Joanna Rowsell in Pursuit

18th February 2012: Joanna Rowsell became the only British rider to win two Golds at the UCI Track Cycling World Cup in London today when she beat favourite Alison Shanks in the Women's Pursuit.

Rowsell made a strong start against Shanks in the pursuit final and held her form as the Kiwi cut the deficit midway through the race, with the Briton going away again in the closing stages to win in 3:32.364.

"I thought I would try to go out fast in order to get my nose out in front," said Rowsell. "I knew I could bring it back home in last kilo. I wound it up with four laps to go."

She added: "There's such a good team spirit, everyone is helping out each other. When I'm out on the track I feel I have the whole squad behind me. I knew it must have been goobecause of how loud it was."

Tasmanian Amy Cure, 19, who had qualified fourth best, was hungry for a medal and went after it with gusto in her race for bronze against Lithuanian Vilija Sereikaite. Cure started at a steady pace while her rival was quick out of the gate but Cure had matched her pace by the one kilometre mark. Sereikaite then clawed back the lead by the end of two kilometres before she faded as Cure came home strongly to complete the 12 laps in a time of 3.36.707 which was .430 up on the Lithuanian.

It was the second bronze medal for Cure who was a member of the team pursuit trio that finished third on Friday.

"That (teams pursuit) definitely gave me a lot of confidence for today and going in there after qualifying fourth this morning I just really wanted that bronze medal," said Cure. "So to come out here and win that bronze medal really means a lot to me."

Although still a teenager Cure has four junior world titles to her name and is the current world record holder in both the under 19 individual and team pursuit events and despite being five years younger than her opponent said she was confident she could match her pace.

"You look at the times from the qualifying and she's a very fast starter in the first kilometre but tends to drop it off in the last kilometre but I tend to be a slower starter but bring it home in the the second and third kilometres," she explained. "But I knew at the start and I wasn't stressing if I was down a little bit but more-so towards the end I needed to pick it up and give my best and finish it off strong."
