London Olympics cycling: Britain take men`s sprint goldLondon: Britain won gold at the velodrome in world record time Thursday, beating France in the men`s team sprint final.

Britain`s Chris Hoy, Philip Hindes and Jason Kenny won in a time of 42.600 seconds, knocking 0.147 seconds off the world record they had set earlier in the day, and beating France`s Gregory Bauge, Michael d`Almeida and Kevin Sireau by 0.413 seconds.

With the win, Hoy picked up his fifth Olympic gold and sixth overall, and secured a place in history for winning medals at four consecutive Olympics.

Germany`s team of Rene Enders, Robert Forstemann and Maximilian Levy won the bronze medal, edging out Australia`s Matthew Clatezer, Shane Perkins and Scott Sunderland.


The Germans won the bronze medal match in a time of 43.209 seconds, with the Australians 0.146 seconds behind.

The women`s team sprint earlier saw controversy when Germany took the gold after their Chinese opponents` winning performance in the final was disallowed for an illegal changeover.

The same fault had previously seen the British team disqualified, allowing the Germans to take the hosts` place in the final. Australia took bronze, beating Ukraine.
