After Australia’s travails in qualifying, Sam Welsford acknowledged that the squad’s eventual bronze medal in the team pursuit at the Tokyo Olympics felt like gold. The Australian quartet of Welsford, Leigh Howard, Kelland O’Brien and Lucas Plapp claimed the final podium spot on Wednesday after New Zealand were hindered by a crash in the bronze medal race.

Australia’s hopes of gold were dashed when they could only record the fifth fastest time in the qualifying round, where they had required a restart when Alex Porter crashed after his handlebars snapped.
