Edmondson Claims Second Gold Medal at Track Worlds
SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France (AP) — Australian Annette Edmondson claimed a second gold medal at the track cycling world championships with a victory in the omnium on Sunday.
Edmondson won with a total of 192 points, finishing ahead of Olympic champion Laura Trott of Great Britain on the final day of competition at the Velodrome National.
Trott ended 16 points behind Edmondson and edged Dutch sprinter Kirsten Wild, the scratch race world champion, by just one point.
The 23-year-old Edmondson, who was second at the halfway mark of the competition, sealed her victory in the 25-kilometer points race after winning the 500-meter time trial and the flying lap.
Edmonson's triumph in the multidiscipline event for the most versatile riders came three days after she helped Australia win gold in the team pursuit.
