Knight in new 500m record


Josie Knight set a new Junior record in the 500m time trial on the final day of the European Track Championships in Athens.

The Kerry-woman, racing as an Under 23 this week although still eligible to race as a Junior, raced through her two-lap time trial in 38.3 seconds and battled back to complete a busy week by winning a sprint in the sixth and final race, the Points Race to finish 13th overall.

Meanwhile Autumn Collins was 15th in both the 500m Time Trial and the Flying Lap. Eoin Mullen was third in his heat of the Men's Under-23 Keirin and finished in the same position in his repechage thus missing out on a spot in the semi-finals.
