Great Britain won two silver medals and one bronze on the final day of the UCI Track Nations Cup in Adelaide.

Katie Archibald was second in the women’s omnium with 125 points, nine behind New Zealand’s Ally Wollaston.

Katy Marchant took silver in the keirin, which was won by Japan’s Mina Sato.

Ollie Wood and Joshua Tarling claimed bronze for Britain in the madison, gaining a lap on the peloton late on to finish behind New Zealand and Germany.

Britain won three golds, two silvers and three bronze over the three-day event.

Scot Archibald was second in the scratch race, second in the tempo race and third in the elimination race, while Wollaston was first, third and first respectively.

Archibald was within a point of Wollaston before the final sprint in the points race – the final omnium event – but Wollaston won it to secure victory.

The event was the first of three Nations Cup rounds which will complete the qualifying period for this summer’s Paris Olympics.

Hong Kong will host the second round from 15-17 March, and the final round will be held in Milton, Canada, from 12-14 April.
