CYCLING: Jason Kenny misses out on a medal in the World Cycling Track Championships team sprint
JASON Kenny has expressed his disappointment at failing to win a medal in the team sprint at the World Track Championships in Colombia.
The Bolton Olympic triple gold medallist, along with Philip Hindes and Kian Emadi, clocked 43.617secs, losing out on a medal ride by just over one tenth of a second to the French team.
Kenny, aged 25, who defends his keirin title on Thursday’s second day of the championships, said: “It is frustrating for me.
”I’ve got a lot of medals in this event over the years, not many of them gold. We’ve got the Olympic gold medals, which is the main ones.
”We’ve got the potential to dominate, or certainly to be competitive every time we go out and that’s where I’d like to be really.
”We’re disappointed with the result, but the time itself and the way we rode wasn’t that bad.
”We’ve got a lot closer to the lead than we have been. The New Zealand guys were out in front by a little bit of a margin, but everyone else was quite tight.
”It’s just unfortunate everyone is so tight and we just slipped out the second ride.”
