Beijing: Hong Kong`s Olympic medal-winning track cyclist Sarah Lee Wai-sze took gold in the women`s individual sprint Thursday in a dramatic third-race decider against Chinese star Zhong Tianshi.

Zhong just edged the first race and looked to have won the second but was then relegated for entering the sprinter`s lane when Lee was already there. 

The third race saw 23-year-old Zhong pull ahead with half-a-lap to go but this time Lee, 27, managed to stay with her and push through for her second gold of the competition.
