Cycling

  • In the women's team sprint, the world record was beaten by Great Britain, and subsequently by China, in the qualification, before China improved the record further in the first round. Germany won the gold medal after Britain were relegated in the first round, and China in the final, both for exchange of riders outside the designated area. China took the silver medals, and Australia the bronze.[89]
  • Great Britain won the men's team sprint, having set world records in both the first round and the final, allowing Chris Hoy to equal Steve Redgrave's British record of five Olympic gold medals. France finished second, with Germany third.[90] A minor controversy erupted when German-born Philip Hindes of the gold medal British team told the BBC that the team had pre-planned a crash in case they did not start fast enough. British Cycling suggested Hindes' comments were "lost in translation".[91]
  • In the men's team pursuit, Great Britain set a world record of 3:52.499 in the qualification round.

Fencing

  • Italy won the women's team foil final, defeating Russia 45–31. South Korea was victorious against France, 45–32, in the bronze medal match.[92]
