Anna Meares could renew her rivalry with Brit Victoria Pendleton in the Women’s Sprint
tonight, with the pair on course to meet in the final at the Olympic Park velodrome. The 28 year-old Queenslander collected a bronze medal in the team sprint while Pendleton already has one gold medal to her name after winning the Women’s Keiren on day seven of The Games. The pair are widely considered to be the two best female sprinters of the modern era, and have met in numerous sprint finals at major championships, including the one in Beijing four year ago which was won by Pendleton.
Also at the velodrome, 2011 world champion Shane Perkins goes for gold in the Men’s Keiren
, while Annette Edmonson – who collected silver at the World Championships in Melbourne earlier in the year – goes into day two of the Women’s Omnium
well placed in third.
In addition to reigning world champion Sally Pearson in the Women’s 100m Hurdles
, Australia will be represented in the athletics by Benn Harradine in the Men’s Discus final
West Australian gymnast Lauren Mitchell goes into Women’s Floor final
hopeful of collecting a medal having been crowned world champion in the event two year ago, while Brad Kahlefeldt , Brendan Sexton and Courtney Atkinson will carry the hopes of the nation in the Men’s Triathlon
