Another good day at the office for Jody, after a hard first 2 days, a PB and a WR was a welcome reward. 10.970 for the flying 200m, however with the British Championship being factored the result was only good enough for a silver medal, the event was a WR feast, with 4 of the 5 competitors going under their existing classification WR’s.
The event was won by Jon Allan Butterworth (C5), with Terry Byrne (C4) finishing 3rd.
Tomorrow sees Jody trying his hand at the 4km Pursuit, and with a good ride more medals may come.
In a nail-biting contest with Team Terminator, Andrew Kelly, Dave Readle and Jody Cundy (www.scienceinsport.com) took the bronze medal in the Team Sprint with a time of 47.752 and only two-tenths separating the teams. For Jody, this was his first able-bodied National medal and a great start to the 2010 Nationals.
Gold went to the Sky Track Cycling team of Sir Chris Hoy, Jason Kenny and Matthew Crampton with a time of 44.563, beating City of Edinburgh.
After three rounds of Team Sprint on Day 1, the Kilo was going to be a tough event for Jody. Still, he managed to finish in a 1:07.241 which was enough to secure him the bronze medal in the factored multi-disability event. Gold went to Jon-Allen Butterworth with a time of 1:09.618 while Barney Storey and Neil Fachie won silver finishing in a time of 1:03.538
With the Team Sprint and the Kilo out of the way, Jody will be trying to defend his National title in the Flying 200m on the third day.
