Brennauer and Brauße win Bronze

28/02/2020

On day two of competition, Lisa Brennauer and Franziska Brauße were in action in round 1 of the team pursuit after qualifying in 7th place the previous day, this was their chance to post a faster time, and try and make it into the bronze medal final.

 

The German quartet had a strong showing, breaking the German national record by three seconds and along the way posting the 2nd fastest time ever recorded in history with a 4:11:089. They made it into the bronze medal final and had to compete against Canada.

 

In the early stages of the finals, Canada were over 1 second quicker than the German quartet, and it looked as though their chances of a medal in front of a home crowd were over. However, in the closing stages of the 4km (16lap) timed event, Germany pulled together and were able to overhaul the Canadian team, stopping the clock with another impressive time, 4:12:964.

 

Day 3 of competition sees defending world champion, Kirsten Wild in action in the Omnium.
