The 2020 UCI World Track Cycling Championships have concluded in Berlin, with cyclists from the NSW Institute of Sport among the Aussie medallists.
Thomas Cornish and Kaarle McCulloch both took home medals in the Team Sprint events early in the meet.
After an injury hampered season, New South Wales athlete Kaarle McCulloch re-joined her 2019 World Champion teammate, Stephanie Morton to take home silver in the Women’s Team Sprint final, a mere 0.221 seconds behind the German team. It’s a fantastic return to competition for the pair and keeps them well on track towards Tokyo.
Thomas Cornish led out the Men’s Team Sprint in his first ever elite World Championships and put in a number of blistering rides to eventually overcome the French team in the bronze medal final. Cornish, a current member of the Cycling Australia Podium Potential Academy, got the call up just a week out from the event and made the most of his opportunity in the elite ranks.
