Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - The British women‘s pursuit team posted a new world record of 4 minutes, 12.152 seconds over 4,000 metres on Saturday to qualify for the finals against a strong American team.

The four riders - Katie Archibald, Laura Trott, Elinor Barker and Joanna Rowsell-Shand - beat by 13-hundredths of a second the previous world record of 4:12.282 seconds set only shortly before by the American women‘s team in beating Australia.

The British qualification thereby sets up a showdown with the US for the gold medal later Saturday.
