Rowsell claimed gold in imperious fashion.

England's Joanna Rowsell added Commonwealth Games gold to her world title with a dominant performance over Australia's Annette Edmondson in the women's individual pursuit in Glasgow.

The Olympic champion set a Commonwealth record in reaching the final and produced another stunning showing to clinch the 10<sup>th major title of her career, and the second won by Team England on the track.

Edmondson was forced to settle for silver, while fellow-Aussie Amy Cure claimed bronze after beating home-favourite Katie Archibald.

"It feels absolutely brilliant," the 25 year old said. "The individual pursuit is one of my favourite events. It was really nice to come here and train for the individual pursuit and I'm glad that work has paid off. For me this is like the Olympic because this event isn't in the Olympics anymore so I am really pleased.

"This was the biggest event of the summer for me. The world championships were the goal then from March and every race I've done in-between has been about training for this. I'm glad I've been able to peak at the right time and I'm really pleased.

"For us watching yesterday we got a lot of inspiration and it was a good day for the team yesterday. I quiet like racing on the second day of competition, I like watching the first day and getting the atmosphere of it all so I am really pleased to get the gold today."
