Richael Timothy concluded her Paracycling Track World Championship campaign Saturday morning finishing in 6th place in the WC3 individual pursuit covering the 3000m distance in a time of 4:15.816.
Timothy comes away with two national records in the flying 200m and 500m time trial events and two fourth place finishes in the scratch race and omnium.
“I think it went well overall, I obviously got two fourth places so it’s a little bit hard to take, I suppose, but at the same time I have progressed since last year or the year before, so I’m happy enough with that."
“It’s really good to get to be here before (the Paralympics) but as well for me and the athletes that were beating me by a lot just to get closer, I’m working towards and hopefully next year I can get closer again,” Timothy said.
Getting an opportunity to race in the same velodrome that will be used for the 2024 Paralympic Games and seeing the progress that has been made since last year have been the highlights for Timothy.
“Getting to compete here before the Games has been really good and I think overall just to get a few pb’s and to know that I am faster than I was last year is really good,” Timothy added.
