Tandem teams in all-British final
Great Britain's tandem teams of Anthony Kappes and Craig MacLean and Neil Fachie and Barney Storey are set to race each other for Paralympic gold in the sprint final on the fourth and final day of track competition at the London 2012 velodrome.
Kappes and his pilot MacLean, the fastest qualifiers, comfortably held off Japan's Tatsuyuki Oshiro and Yasufumi Ito in the first bout and in the second the Britons were convincing winners once more to advance to the best-of-three gold medal final.
One-kilometre time-trial champions Fachie and his pilot Storey led out the sprint in their first bout with Jose Enrique Porto and Jose Antonio Villanueva of Spain and were able to hold off their rivals' charge to win by half a tandem length.
It was a similar display in the second bout as the Britons advanced 2-0. Spain and Japan fell into the battle for bronze.
In the women's blind and visually impaired three-kilometres tandem pursuit, Aileen McGlynn and Helen Scott met fellow Britons Lora Turnham and Fiona Duncan in the race for bronze.
McGlynn, who won Paralympic gold in Beijing, and her pilot Scott clocked three minutes 40.138 seconds to take bronze. It was the pairs second medal of the Games after silver in the one-kilometre time-trial.
Turnham and her pilot Duncan finished in 3mins 41.147secs and had to settle for fourth place.
World champions Catherine Walsh and Francine Meehan of Ireland met New Zealand's Phillipa Gray and Laura Thompson, who set a world record of 3:31.530 in qualifying.
The Kiwi duo won in 3:32.243, leaving Walsh and Meehan with silver in 3:36.360.
