The New South Wales Metropolitan Track Cycling Championships took place on Sunday 6th December at Lidcombe Oval Velodrome with two talented WSAS athletes, Isaac Silva and Jamie O’callaghan competing on the day.
Isaac competed in the U/17 men’s division and Jamie in the U/17 women’s division. Both divisions consisted of three events from which one overall champion was named. The first event is the time trial and saw Isaac come 2nd in his division and Jamie 1st in her division. This was also a personal best for Jamie and only her first season in the Academy Cycling program!
The second event was the scratch race and despite the hot conditions, both athletes fought hard to take out 2nd place in their respective divisions.
The third and final event was the derby sprint and Jamie was going up against the National Champion for overall first place! Jamie narrowly lost in a photo finish however overall she still came home with an impressive silver medal while Isaac came home with an impressive bronze!
