Ireland’s Martyn Irvine claimed silver in the men’s 15km scratch race at the World Track Championships in Colombia.
Irvine put up a superb defence of the title he won last year but eventually finished second in a sprint finish behind Ivan Kovalev of Russia.
“I’m getting a bit of a greedy head – I always want gold now, but I’ll take silver,” Irvine said.
And Ryan Mullen had to settle for fourth in the men’s four-kilometres individual pursuit.
The 19-year-old clocked four minutes 24.626 seconds as in the bronze medal ride-off as Marc Ryan of New Zealand claimed third in 4mins 22.895secs.
