Farina Shawati finished second behind Japan’s Suzuki Nao in both the girls’ junior scratch and keirin.
The third silver came from Ju Pha Somnet in the women’s elite omnium. Ju Pha amassed 14 points behind Hong Kong’s Diao Xiao Juan, who collected 10 points.
Edrus Yunos and Mohd Shah Firdaus Sahrom made it to the men’s elite sprint semi-finals in the first series on Friday. They, however, lost to their Japanese counterparts. In the battle for bronze, Edrus managed to beat Mohd Shah.
Sprint coach Junaidi Nasir was delighted with the form showed by the juniors.
“Firdaus was targeted to win at least one keirin title here but I am happy he took both. He enjoyed the satisfaction of beating three Japanese riders in their own backyard for the second keirin gold.
“Firdaus should be able to win the sprint if the event was contested here as well,” said Junaidi.
