Great Britain's Katie Archibald enjoyed the latest of her long string of 2021 successes with the gold medal in the women's omnium at the World Track Cycling Championships.

The 27-year-old posted a total of 137 points to edge out Belgian rider Lotte Kopecky's 119 in silver, while Italy's Elisa Balsamo secured the bronze medal.

Reflecting on her performance after the race, Archibald told the media: "I turned up pretty nervous. I saw the other riders in the scratch race and the elimination and thought 'gee, they look fast'.

"Especially with the qualifiers, it was like a nice warm-up for the event, and when you have the first event go well, like I did with the scratch race, it gives you more confidence to race aggressively as you go through the day.

"This has been a fantastic year. I race in the madison with Neah Evans tomorrow and we have our qualification event in 13 hours, so a nice spin, some ice because I hit my knee in the elimination knock and then just keep going."

Archibald's world title comes after she won three European gold medals earlier this month, which followed her Tokyo 2020 Olympics madison triumph with Laura Kenny. body check tags ::
