Chris Hoy gave Britain its first cycling medal of the Athens Olympics on Friday when he won the 1-km time trial in a new Games record.
Hoy, a silver medallist in the sprint event in Sydney, completed the four laps of the velodrome in one minute 00.711 seconds, eclipsing the old Olympic record set by his team mate Jason Queally in Sydney.
Frenchman Arnaud Tournant, four times a time trial world champion on the track, took silver in 1:00.896 while Germany's Stefan Nimke took bronze in 1:01.186.
