The women's Keirin at the 2012 Olympic Games in London took place at the London Velopark on 3 August.[1]

Great Britain's Victoria Pendleton won the gold medal.[2] Guo Shuang from China won silver and Lee Wai Sze took bronze for Hong Kong's only medal of the 2012 Games.

Competition format[edit]

The Keirin races involved 5.5 laps of the track behind a motorcycle, followed by a 2.5 lap sprint to the finish. The tournament consisted of preliminary heats and repechages, a semi-finals round, and the finals. The heats and repechages narrowed the field to 12. The semi-finals divided the remaining 12 into six finalists. The finals round also included a ranking race for 7th to 12th place.[3]
