James continues to impress at track cycling Worlds

22 February 2013 / 13:13

Becky James's bid for a third medal at the track cycling World Championship is still on track.

James has already won bronze in the team sprint and 500m time trial and impressively progressed to the women's sprint quarter-finals - her favourite event.

The 21-year old was the only rider to go below 11 seconds in qualifying. That earned her a first-round bye and she comfortably eased past second round opponent Lisandra Guerra Rodriguez, who had beaten British teenager Vicky Williamson in the first round.

Three-time Olympic gold medallist Jason Kenny - fresh from yesterday's disappointment in the men's team sprint - needed two races to progress to the semi-finals of the men's keirin but team-mate Matt Crampton was eliminated.
