Records beaten in qualifying

By Rob Jones

In the flying 200 metre time trials for the sprint qualification, five men broke the existing Olympic records, with the top qualifiers both within a tenth of a second of the world record.

Chris Hoy was the best for the men, with a time of 9.815 seconds, followed by his team-mate Jason Kenny at 9.857 seconds. Theo Bos holds the world record at 9.772 seconds.

Stefan Nimke (Germany), Kevin Sireau (France) and Mickael Bourgain (France) also went under the Olympic mark of 10.129 seconds, set by Gary Neiwand of Australia, back in Atlanta in 1996.
