Tokyo Olympics LIVE RESULTS: Team GB 2nd-fastest in Team Pursuit qualifying, Laura Muir safely through – Day 10 updates

TEAM GB QUALIFY SECOND

From The Sun’s Martin Lipton in Tokyo:

Laura Kenny’s quest for a fifth Olympic gold took a stumble in Izu – but she still has the chance to ride into history.

The four-time champion from Rio and London is in a household battle with hubby Jason, who has six golds in his locker, to top their family ladder.

And the 29-year-old mum, alongside Rio gold-winning team-mates Katie Archibald and Elinor Barker and Games rookie Josie Knight, looked set be laying down a huge marker as they were in course for a scintillating world record after 3km of their 4km team pursuit qualifier.

But after Knight – born in the Dingle peninsula and who switched nationality from Ireland – was dropped, the remaining trio lost pace alarmingly to finish in 4:09.022.

It was good enough for second fastest and a head to head with the USA tomorrow and would have been a world record before today.

But it was almost two seconds adrift of the new world record pace set by Germany, to leave Kenny and Co aware they face a real fight on their hands to land gold.
