Australians have more success on track at worlds

TWO more medals on the final day of action saw Australia finish the world track championships in Colombia level with Germany at the top of the table.

A silver to Anna Meares in the keirin and bronze to Annette Edmondson in the omnium gave Australia eight medals for the meet in Cali - three gold, two silver and three bronze.

Meares finished behind Germany's Kristina Vogel who joined the Aussie as one of just three women to win three sprint gold medals at a single world championships.

Kevin Tabotta, national performance director of Cycling Australia's high performance unit, said the results suggested the team was on track for July's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. "No country was able to really dominate here, so our eight medals with three gold is a good indicator of our progress," he said.

South Australia's Matthew Glaetzer missed a medal on the final night, finishing fourth in the men's sprint.
