Australia has had another successful night in the velodrome with two more gold medals to add to the growing collection in Glasgow.

Australia went one-two in the women’s 10km scratch race, with Annette Edmondson and Amy Cure executing a perfect race plan to take gold and silver.

Cure hit the front in the final laps and held off a number of attacks before Edmondson swooped late to take the title.

Then in the men’s 1,000m time-trial, Scott Sunderland came with a late burst to take the gold medal.

He was racing against the clock along with New Zealand’s Simon van Velthooven and the pair looked set to battle for the minor medals before Sunderland upped the pace in the final lap of four to come home in a Games record time of one minute 00.675 seconds.

Van Velthooven won the silver and fellow New Zealander Matthew Archibald took the bronze.

Australia also won two medals in the men’s parasport sprint B2 tandem.

Kieran Modra and pilot Jason Niblett took the silver medal, while Paul Kennedy and pilot Tom Clarke won bronze behind Scottish winners Neil Fachie and pilot Craig Maclean.
