Laura Trott

Trott has won seven gold, four silver and one bronze medal at the last five World Championships

Britain’s Laura Trott won her second gold medal of the Track Cycling World Championships with victory in the women’s omnium.

It is a seventh world title for the 23-year-old, who also won the scratch race earlier this week.

“It’s only taken four years to get the gold back,” laughed Trott, who has won three omnium silver medals since winning the world title in 2012.

The gold medal is Britain’s fourth of the championships.

Jason Kenny, who won the sprint title on Saturday, rides in the keirin final later on Sunday, while Sir Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish team up for the madison, an event they won at the 2008 Worlds.

You can watch Kenny, Wiggins and Cavendish chasing gold medals live on the BBC Sport website.
