Hong Kong's Lee Wai Sze claimed the women's sprint title on the third day of track cycling competition here at the 2017 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games in Turkmenistan's capital Ashgabat.
Lee, the current Asian champion in the 500m time trial, keirin and individual sprint, won both the first and second races in the final for gold against India’s Deborah Herold.
The 30-year-old clocked winning times of 12.526sec and 11.694 respectively to clinch top honours.
Victory comes five months after Lee won the bronze medal at her home International Cycling Union (UCI) Track Cycling World Championships.
Indonesia’s Crismonita Dwi Putri rounded out today’s podium after beating Lee’s compatriot Ma Wing Yu in the final for bronze.
Putri won the first race in 12.030 and the second in 11.996.
The semi-finals took place earlier in the day with Herold beating Ma and Lee defeating Putri.
Hong Kong join Iran, winners of the men’s team sprint event on Monday (September 18), at the top of the track cycling medal standings.
Kazakhstan and India are joint third with one silver medal each, while Indonesia and Thailand are tied for fifth spot with one bronze medal apiece.
Competition in the sport is due to continue tomorrow when medals are set to be awarded in the women’s team sprint event.
