Cycling star Pfeiffer Georgi hopes to capitalize on his first omnium


Cyclist Pfeiffer Georgi has pledged to use her first-ever omnium as the springboard for a madison medal ahead of the final day of cycling at the European Multisport Championships.

Georgi, 21, is a road specialist but delivered a bold display in Monday’s scratch, tempo, elimination and points races to finish seventh out of ten runners.

The Gloucester star won a brilliant silver in Friday night’s self-contained elimination race after narrowly avoiding two major crashes on the makeshift 200m velodrome track at Messe in Munich.

She had similar luck throughout Monday’s multi-stage event but says the future is bright ahead of today’s Madison alongside Olympic team pursuit silver medalist Neah Evans.

Georgi, whose sport is one of nine contested in Germany this week, said: “Today was quite difficult, but it’s my first omnium at this level.

“I didn’t have the best start in the scratch race, but I think I used my road stamina to keep improving throughout the races.

“I felt better towards the end of the points race.

“It’s quite difficult when you see a crash like that and stop for a long time.

“I’m looking forward to the madison. I’m riding with Neah, it’s one of my favorite events and it’s going to be fun at this track.”

Italian ace Rachele Barbieri won the event ahead of French star Clara Copponi and pole Daria Pikulik.

In the men’s omnium, Ollie Wood finished eighth while earlier in the day fellow Briton Kian Emadi finished 12th and failed to advance to the kilo final.

And away from the velodrome, it was a dominant day for the British table tennis stars as Tom Davies, Sam Walker and Tin-Tin Ho comfortably won their men’s and women’s singles matches.

The three players triumphed 3-0 as Davies beat Luxembourg’s Eric Glod, Walker toppled Turkey’s Abdullah Talha Yigenler and Ho passed Poland’s Anna Wergrzyn.

The European Multisport Championships Munich 2022, including athletics, beach volleyball, canoe sprint, cycling, gymnastics, table tennis, triathlon, rowing and sport climbing, will take place from 11 to August 21 on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Olympic Games in the city of Germany. .
