Barker takes bronze in Glasgow

Elinor Barker picked up bronze for Wales with a late surge for the line in the 10 kilometre scratch race, edging England's Dani King and Scotland's Katie Archibald out of the medals.

Nineteen-year-old Barker, a two-time team pursuit world champion with Team GB, held on to third place in the bunch race as a group of riders sprinted for the line in the last of 40 laps of the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome.

King put in a fine performance too, finishing fourth after staying towards the head of the pack in the closing stages, while Archibald had to settle for fifth after initiating the final sprint only to be hauled in.

Australia continued their fine Games on the track, as Annette Edmondson claimed gold to go with her individual pursuit silver, and Amy Cure banked silver.

Double OIympic champion Laura Trott, who missed out on the finals of the individual pursuit, endured another disappointment as she finished 11th in the scratch.

Rowsell, who claimed IP gold on Friday, was never in contention this time and came in 19th of 24.
