Shot Notes

Congratulations to Victoria Pendleton who survived a nasty fall on the decking in the first round of her semi-final to beat 2011 world champion Anny Meares in a thrilling Sprint World Championship decider after her rival’s second-round victory was disallowed.

Local gal Meares defeated Pendleton in the semi-final to win last year’s title at Apeldoorn and appeared to be set for another win after leaving Pendleton in a tangle of bike and limbs on the velodrome after the first race after the Brit made contact with Meares during a bid to catch her in the final straight. Meares stormed to an easy victory in the second round, sparking raucous cheers from the packed terraces, but the fans’ delight was cut short minutes later when she was relegated, also for moving illegally into her opponent’s line.

After a cagey start to the decider, with both riders carrying a warning, Pendleton mounted a stunning attack from before midway through the last lap to reel in Meares by a tyre length and land a psychological blow before the London Games. This is her sixth sprint title. Olympic champion Pendleton then defeated Simona Krupeckaite 2-0 in the best-of-three final after the Lithuanian was relegated for coming off her line in the second-round sprint at Hisense Arena to clinch Britain’s fourth title.
