London: World champion Jason Kenny was surprisingly knocked out of the men`s sprint event at the London track World Cup when he lost to German Maximilian Levy in the quarter-finals on Sunday.

The Briton seemed to lack energy as he was comfortably beaten 2-0 by German Maximilian Levy.

His defeat could seriously affect his chances of an Olympic spot in the discipline, especially if fellow-Briton Chris Hoy, the Olympic champion, goes through later on Sunday.

Hoy was locked at 1-1 with France`s Gregory Bauge as the tie was sent to a decider.

Only one rider from each nation is allowed to take part in the men`s individual sprint.

Frenchman Kevin Sireau easily beat Team Sky`s Matt Crampton of Britain to reach the semi-finals.
