Callum Skinner adds Olympic silver medal to his gold
CYCLIST Callum Skinner took silver in the individual sprint behind team mate Jason Kenny, adding to the gold he took in the team event last week.
The Glasgow-born City of Edinburgh racer was beaten in the final of the men’s sprint on day four of action at the Rio Olympic Velodrome.
The 28-year-old Kenny beat team-mate and room-mate Skinner 2-0 to join fellow cyclist Sir Bradley Wiggins and rower Sir Steve Redgrave on five Olympic gold medals.
Kenny’s only defeat in Olympic competition was at the 2008 Beijing Games, when Sir Chris Hoy beat him in the sprint.
