Third medal for Webster

Monday 28 July 2014

New Zealand cyclist Sam Webster may have some trouble getting through the airport metal detector when he returns to New Zealand.

The 23-year-old today picked up the silver medal in the keirin, the final event of the track schedule for the Commonwealth Games.

That means Webster leaves Glasgow with two gold medals and a silver. The New Zealand track squad won 11 medals in Glasgow, including four gold. At the 210 Delhi Commonwealth Games they were lauded for winning nine.

The keirin was won by Australian Matthew Glaetzer in 10.465s, with Webster pressing him all the way.

The other New Zealander in the field, Eddie Dawkins, was sixth.
