of his life as he speeds to claim

Australia's Nathan O'Neill won gold in the Men’s Individual Time Trial completing the 40km course in 48 minutes, 37.29 seconds. O'Neill had set the fastest time at the half-way mark and continued on to win.

Ben Day, also from Australia, won the silver, finishing the course along Port Phillip Bay with a time 24 seconds longer than O’Neill. New Zealander Gordon McCauley took the bronze.

The Australian's double came a couple of hours after Australia won all three medals in the women's 29km race, Oenone Wood claimed the gold with veteran Kathy Watt coming second and Sara Carrigan taking third.

One of the favourites going into the event, New Zealander Sarah Ulmer, boosted Australia's hopes of a clean sweep of the event by withdrawing with a back injury minutes from the start of the race.

"I'm very satisfied with the way I rode. I've only had a couple of weeks preparation for this as before that I was focused on the Road (Race)," said Wood.

Australia has now won nine cycling gold medals for the Games out of a possible 14.
