Vos wins unique cycling triple crown

Marianne Vos made cycling history on Saturday by taking the gold medal in the women’s points race at the world track championships in Manchester (UK).

Vos, who is just 20, took the world road race and cyclo-cross titles in 2006, making her the first woman to win all three disciplines.
On Sunday Teun Mulder won the men’s one-kilometre gold medal and Eleanora van Dijk took the women’s scratch race title.
