The individual pursuit bronze medal final looked as if it would be a close run thing  since both Vera Koedooder and Leire Olaberrria Dorronsoro  had posted 3.40 rides in qualifying. In the first half of the race it looked like the Spaniard was home and dry when she pulled out a significant lead but the Dutch rider Koedooder came back at her and finished strongly to pass the Spanish rider  and take the  Bronze to another  a standing ovation.
