Reed wins Pan Am silver in sprint, brings medal count to three



Valencia, Venezuela (May 23, 2007)—Jennie Reed (Kirkland, Wash./Momentum) won her second medal of the week at the 2007 Pan American Road and Track Championships on Wednesday, adding a silver medal in the match sprint to the gold she won on Monday in the keirin.

After securing a spot in Wednesday’s semifinals on Tuesday, Reed took two out of three head-to-head sprints from Mexico’s Nancy Contreras to advance to the gold-medal final against Cuba’s Lizandra Guerra. Guerra, who finished second to Reed in the keirin two days ago, got the best of Reed to claim the gold.

In the women’s points race, Neva Day (Manhattan Beach, Calif./South Bay Wheelmen) abandoned after a mid-race crash despite an effort to finish. Becky Quinn (Quakertown, Pa.), originally scheduled to compete, did not start due to illness.
