China kicked off the track cycling programme at the
Tokyo 2020 Games
in style on Monday as it defended its team sprint Olympic title and took gold in a world record time at the Izu Velodrome.

China’s team of Bao Shanju and Zhong Tianshi beat the World Championship gold-medallist German pairing of Lea Friedrich and Emma Hinze in the final by just five hundredths of a second to secure China’s second track cycling Olympic medal.

The British and Dutch are very strong in cycling competition. Kudos to Chinese who managed grab a gold from this sport.
