LONDON (AP) The British women's pursuit team shattered its own world record Saturday while qualifying for the gold medal race against the United States.
The team of Dani King, Laura Trott and Joanna Rowsell covered the 3,000 meters in 3 minutes, 14.682 seconds, lowering the mark of 3:15.669 that they set the previous day in qualifying.
The U.S. team advanced to the final with a time of 3:16.853.
It was the ninth world record broken on the pine wood surface of the London Velodrome. Seven of those records have been set by the British team, which won three of the four gold medals awarded on the first two days of the Olympic track cycling program.
