22-year-old Lara Gillespie sprinted to victory in the elimination at the UCI Track Champions League Grand Finale in London last night, notably defeating Great Britain's Katie Archibald, the two-time Olympic champion and multiple Worlds champion.

Norway's two-time European champion Anita Stenberg stayed with Gillespie until the final sprint but ultimately finished in second, so Archibald was forced to settle for third.

It was a thrilling conclusion to a strong day for Gillespie, as the recent UCD graduate finished second in the scratch race, behind only GB's two-time world champion Neah Evans. Lithuania's Olivija Baleisyte placed third.
