Britain failed to add to its track cycling medal tally at Monday’s European Championships as Pfeiffer Georgi and Oliver Wood missed out on omnium podiums.

On the penultimate day of Velodrome action in Munich, Georgi finished seventh in the women’s race while Wood finished eighth in the men’s race.

Kian Emadi had previously failed to reach the final of the one-kilometer time trial and finished 12th in qualifying.

Great Britain has accumulated five medals in track cycling so far, including Georgi, who secured a silver in the elimination race, and Wood, who contributed to a team pursuit bronze.

Meanwhile, it was announced that Jack Carlin, who fell in Sunday’s individual sprint semi-final before winning silver, was flying home and would not be competing in Tuesday’s keirin.

Athletics team captain Ashleigh Nelson reached the 100m semifinals, finishing third in her run in a time of 11.41 seconds.

Nelson is coming in as a replacement for Asha Philip, who was forced to resign after testing positive for coronavirus.

Nelson said on britishathletics.org.uk: “Not only did I come for the relay, I ran the 100m and was then made captain. It’s all quite emotional, but I came here to set the bar high for the team. I feel like I did, so I hope they can follow my lead.

“It was a bit of a surprise to run and it’s under unfortunate circumstances but now I have the opportunity, I’m not only running for myself but for Asha too.”

Sophie Cook and Molly Caudery qualified for the pole vault final, with the former setting her personal best of 4.50m while other Britons who made it to the final were Jacob Finchman-Dukes and Reynold Banigo (long jump) and Scott Lincoln and Sophie McKinna (shot put) were. .

The best British finishers in the marathons were Philip Sesemann (17th) and Alice Wright (22nd).
