Meares said "I gave absolutely all I had. I really wanted to come home with the gold, but white gold will have to do."

"She's (Pendleton) a sensational athlete, I really want to beat her next time: that was a fantastic race for Vicky."

Kerrie Meares won the bronze.

In the Men's Team Pursuit, England claimed gold edging out Australia. England raced with three of their four World Champions in the team and won in a time of 4:02.699.
