October 20, 2013 17:59 pm

Laura Trott grabbed her second gold at the European Track Championships after she topped the pile in the women’s omnium in the Netherlands.

Trott, who was part of the quartet that finished first in the women’s team pursuit event, finished the individual six-event competition on 15 points.

That put her level with Kirsten Wild of the Netherlands, but 21-year-old Trott won the title on countback.

Triple Olympic champion Jason Kenny claimed a silver in the men’s keirin event to go with his sprint bronze from Saturday.

Kenny was pipped out of top spot on the podium by Germany’s Maximilian Levy while fellow Brit Matthew Crampton was eighth in the same event.

In the women’s keirin double world champion Becky James had to settle for seventh while her teammate Victoria Williamson was ninth.

Sam Harrison meanwhile ended up fifth in the men's omnium, just one point away from the bronze-medal position.
