Boost For Fatehah

"This was a real race, compared to what we went through last week (Round One), so it feels good to have defeated Kaarle for the third time," said Fatehah, 24, who also won the 500m time trial on Saturday. "This was also the first time I have bettered her time in qualifying so that is a good confidence boost and I'll hope to repeat that in the keirin tomorrow (today)."

The showdown between the two hot favourites in the women's sprint was among the highlights of the day, with the Australian men's contingent expectedly sweeping all three medals in their 200m sprint competition. Former world champion Shane Perkins defeated Peter Lewis in the final, while Scott Sunderland brushed away Ulsan City's Kang Dong Jin of South Korea to repeat their dominance in the opening round last week.

Promising junior Mohd Firdaus Mohd Zonis remained on track for his sweep of four gold medals after gaining revenge on rival Mohd Shah Firdaus Sahrom in their 200m sprint final. The 17-year old had lost to Shah Firdaus in the 200m sprint final of the opening round last week, the only blot in his otherwise perfect record, which saw him sweep victories in the keirin, 1km time trial and team sprint as well.

"It feels good to have beaten him as we were both going all out in both sprints. Now I just want to finish the job by winning the keirin and team sprint," said Firdaus, who on Saturday won the 1km time trial. The meet ends today with the highlight of the day being the return of Azizulhasni Awang for the keirin event.
