Great time for Vogel/Welte in women's team sprint.

 

Unfortunately, the first thing that comes to my mind when I hear about these two is their London 2012 gold... That competition was quite pathetic.

Oh, so Belarus doesn't get a re-run after falling in men's team sprint. Didn't know that rule is only for certain nations.

Relegations left and right. :p China set WRs in both qualification and first round. Great Britain was also faster than Germany in qualification.

 

First Germans got into final after GB's relegation, and then they won gold after China's relegation. In the final round they were also slower than Australians that won bronze medal match.

 

So that was gold for Germany despite not having the fastest time in any of the rounds. :p

They're not in the live timing as DNF anymore, like a few minutes ago. Maybe they do get a re-run? 

 

Edit: Fairly sure they'll get another chance.

Australians also got screwed. They almost ran over Belorussian who was still down on the track. No gun was fired.

Russians had great tactics. Who cares for qualification round, this round were important. And it seems that German girls lost too much energy in Q.
