Olympics 2020 Live: Day 12 - 3
You can make a compelling argument for track cycling’s men’s team pursuit being Great Britain’s best Olympic discipline, as when Ed Clancy, Ethan Hayter, Oliver Wood and Ethan Vernon compete in the Izu Velodrome, they’ll be seeking to take home GB’s fourth straight gold in the event. The quartet’s most senior member, 36-year-old Clancy, has been part of the team pursuit squads that took gold in Beijing, London and Rio, and he’ll need to inspire his fellow cyclists again as Denmark, Italy and Australia’s teams have all travelled to Japan with high hopes.
The men’s 200m final also takes place later, and GB’s contenders have less experience in fights for medals. Adam Gemili reached the final in 2016 yet was denied bronze in a cruel three-way photo finish that put him just three thousandths of a second behind third place, while Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake will also hope to be in contention.
