It's been a busy Sunday morning in the Stratford Olympic Park, with the early sprint and keirin rounds taking up most of the track - with the Germans dominating the men's sprint once again, a surprising lack of Australians in the later rounds, thanks to the Brits (Scott Sunderland was beaten by Jason Kenny, and Shane Perkins by Matt Crampton in the 1st round) and, once again, a match-up worthy of the final, as Chris Hoy beat Gregory Baugé to get his place in the semis. The bunch race for 5th-8th will have taken place by the time we go live - Baugé (Fra), Kazanuri Watanabe (Jpn), Kenny & Crampton (GB)

The women's keirin will be nothing if not fast and furious, with 2 races full of stars to come in the 2nd round:

Race 1: Monique Sullivan (Can), Shuang Guo (Chn), Jess Varnish (GB), Lin Junhong (GPC), Simona Krupeckaite (Ltu) & Lyubov Shulika (Ukr)

Race 2: Anna Meares (Aus), Sandie Clair (Fra), Clara Sanchez (Fra), Vicky Pendlteon (GBr), Wai Sze Lee (HKg) & Willy Kanis (Ned)

The other women's event of the day, the women's omnium, looks to be a much tighter competition than the men's was. Yesterday we had the flying lap, points and elimination, and ended with Australia's Nettie Edmondson on 16 points, Tara Whitten (Can) on 17, and Laura Trott (GB), Sarah Hammer (USA) and Kirsten Wild (Ned) all on 20.

Edit! Whitten, the current omnium World Champ, won the IP, and the top 5 of the standings look VERY close, with 2 rounds to go!

1. Tara Whitten (Can) 18 points
2. Annette Edmondson (Aus) 21
3. Laura Trott (GBr) 22
4. Sarah Hammer (USA) 23
5. Kirsten Wild (Ned) 24
6. Tatsiana Sharakova (Blr) 38
7. Ausrine Trebaite (Ltu) 38
8. Leire Olaberria Dorronsoro, 41
9. Li Huang (Chn) 44
10. Jolien d'Hoore (Bel) 45
11. Pascale Jeuland (Fra) 45
