Jason Queally has finally got his hands on the rainbow jersey of a world champion at the grand old age of 34 after the Lancastrian, Chris Hoy and Jamie Staff won gold in the team sprint in Los Angeles. The trio defied illness and mishap to provide the perfect start to the World Championships with an opening-day victory over an impressive Dutch three, including world sprint champion Theo Bos, in the final.

It was a welcome victory following disappointment in the event at the Athens Olympics when Hoy, Queally and Craig MacLean were beaten in the first round by eventual winners Germany despite setting the second fastest time ever recorded. And it was an especially sweet moment for veteran Queally, who won the kilometre time-trial at the 2000 Olympics but had not topped the podium at a World Championships until now.
