Women's team sprint is a track cycling event contested by teams of two women cyclists. It was introduced as an annual world championship event in 2007. It is to be added to the Olympic programme in 2012. The format consists of two rounds: in the first round, teams compete against the clock to set a qualifying time. The top four teams go through to the final round, where the first and second placed teams compete against each other in the gold medal race-off and the third and fourth teams compete against each other in the bronze medal race-off. As of 2013, Australia have been the most successful team, having won the event three times, placed second once and placed third once.
