CYCLING: ANOTHER GREAT DAY FOR TRACK SQUAD

IT was another great day for the Malaysian cycling track squad when they bagged two gold medals in the morning session of the event held at National Velodrome in Nilai, Negeri Sembilan on Tuesday (29 August). As expected, cycling queen, Fatehah Mustapa set the pace when she won the women's 500m time trial followed by Muhammad Fadhil Mohd. Zonis who scored a surprised in the men's 1km time trial. Fatehah was the hot topic for the day when she created a new national record of 34.542 seconds in the race which was 0.125 second faster than the national record she did in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland. Fatehah led seven other riders throughout the race including teamate, Anis Amira Rosidi who finished fourth place in 36.476s. The silver and bronze went to Indonesia's Crismonita Dwi Putri with a time of 36.165s and her compatriot Santia Tri Kusuma who came in third with a time of 36.345s. "This is a good warm up for me before going for the keirin event later tonight. "My next target is to win gold medal for the country in the keirin event and I am very confident to deliver," said Fatehah. Meanwhile, Muhammad Fadhil set a surprised when he beat teamate and favourites, Muhammad Shah Firdaus Sahrom in the men's 1km time trial final. He won the race with a time of 1:01.889s while Muhammad Shah clocked 1:02.356s for the silver. The bronze medal went to Singapore's Mohamed Elyas Mohamed Yusoff with a time of 1:03.929s.
