Track World Cup: Kadeena Cox beats Sarah Storey to Para-cycling gold in London

Kadeena Cox

Cox created history by winning two golds in two different sports in Rio

Kadeena Cox got the better of fellow Rio Paralympic gold medallist Sarah Storey to win gold on the opening day of the Track World Cup in London.

Cox clocked 36.671 seconds in the women’s C4-5 500m time trial with 14-time Paralympic champion Storey managing 38.309.

Fellow Briton Jody Cundy won the men’s C4-5 1km event and helped the GB squad win the team sprint.

There was also gold for tandem pair Neil Fachie and Matt Rotherham.

Para-cycling events are making their debut at a World Cup with the hope they can become a more permanent fixture.

Cox won the C4-5 500m event in Rio, where Storey was fourth, before going on to take athletics gold in the T38 400m.

She has only recently returned to training after a knee problem and was thrilled with her performance.

“It was a surprise to put in a half-decent time after only being back for eight weeks,” she told BBC Sport.

“It’s quicker than I have been going in training and to perform on the big stage is what I like doing.

“I like to beat Sarah every now and then. It’s not her main event but I will take this one.”

There were also silvers for Megan Giglia (C1-3 500m) and Finley Graham (C1-3 1km) with bronzes for Katie Toft (C1-3 500m) Louis Rolfe (C1-3 1km) and Jon Gildea (C4-5 1km) as well as for Storey’s husband Barney and Matt Ellis in the tandem sprint.

GB claim madison silver at Track Cycling World Cup in London

Fred Wright and Matthew Walls won silver behind Madison champions Denmark

Fred Wright and Matthew Walls won silver behind madison champions Denmark

Great Britain claimed a silver medal in the men’s madison on the second day of the Track Cycling World Cup in London.

Matthew Walls, 20, and Fred Wright, 19, followed up Friday’s team pursuit bronze medals by sealing second place, 16 points behind champions Denmark.

The inexperienced British duo scored in seven of the 12 sprints and finished strongly to hold off Spain.

“It was a really hard race and the standard of the field was mad – there were so many good riders,” Walls said.

“We got quite a few points at the end, so we’re really happy to come away with silver.”

There was disappointment in the men’s keirin where Jack Carlin was edged out of the medals into fourth position, and the women’s omnium in which Elinor Barker finished fifth.

Katy Archibald reached the quarter-finals of the women’s sprint where she was beaten by the eventual winner Stephanie Morton of Australia.
