In other Canadian opening action, the women's Team Pursuit squad was third in the qualifying round, behind Great Britain and the USA.  Both Great Britain and the USA ran their 'A' squads, while Canada was missing Glaesser, Allison Beveridge and Kirsti Lay from their line-up.  The Canadians finished less then a tenth of a second behind the USA, whom they will face in the First Round on Saturday, to determine which team races for gold.

In the men's Team Pursuit, Canada was 12th, and will not move on to the next round.  In the women's Team Sprint, the Canadian duo of Monique Sullivan and Kate O'Brien were fourth in qualifying, and will race Spain for bronze in the final.

In the men's Points Race, Sean MacKinnon was ninth, and in the men's Scratch Race Aidan Caves did not finish.


"The girls have worked extremely hard to get to this point and I could not be more proud of their focus, fortitude, and grace under pressure in a must-do situation. Our objective for the past year has been to chip away at the points we needed to break into the top nine teams that will qualify for the Olympics," said Erin Hartwell, Canada's track sprint coach.

"Today put us into the driver's seat and one step closer to getting both Monique and Kate to Rio. It's wonderful to be racing for a medal tomorrow, as we've qualified into the top four for the first time. However, regardless of immediate success, we will forge on with the mindset and process-driven approach that has brought us to this position. Under no circumstance will we let our collective guard down in our grind to the Games. Nevertheless, I'll admit I'm somewhat happy today..."
