Alex Porter, Australians smash world record on way to gold medal

Australia have smashed their own world record to win the men’s team pursuit gold at the track cycling world championships in Poland, ahead of Olympic champions and title holders Britain.

The Australians led from the start and their quartet of Leigh Howard, Sam Welsford, Kelland O’Brien and Alex Porter set a time of 3:48.012 to eclipse the country’s previous world mark of 3:49.804, achieved at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Denmark took the bronze after beating Canada.

“I’m speechless at the moment, to be honest,” Porter, competing just 10 weeks after breaking a collarbone in a domestic race crash, said.

“It’s a pretty surreal feeling. We were going fast in training but we didn’t imagine we’d be able to do something like that.”

Welsford won the men’s scratch in the day’s second final with Roy Eefting of the Netherlands taking silver and New Zealand’s Tom Sexton the bronze. Australia also ousted England for gold in the women’s team pursuit, winning by 0. 204 seconds after Annette Edmondson, Ashlee Ankudinoff, Georgia Baker and Amy Cure took an early lead and held on.
