Briton Kenny surges to sprint gold

Updated: August 07, 2012 14:08 IST

Britain's Jason Kenny has overcome triple world champion Gregory Bauge to win the Olympic track cycling sprint title as the home nation's velodrome gold rush continued. Kenny, preferred to 2008 champion Chris Hoy as the British entrant, fully justified his selection, winning 2-0 in front of a baying crowd who roared him home to claim Britain's fifth track cycling gold medal of the Games. Kenny had already helped Britain to the team sprint gold and his latest success made him Team GB's first double gold medallist at London 2012, something that the 24-year-old was unaware of.
