Dutch cyclist Tom Dumoulin won silver in the men’s individual time trial event in Rio on Wednesday afternoon.
Dumoulin finished the 54.k race ahead of Tour de France winner Chris Froome but had to concede victory to Swiss rider Fabian Cancellara who finished in 1:12:15.42
Dumoulin, who had a wrist fracture to contend with, said it was just a question of ‘strenuous pedalling’.
In other events, Ranomi Kromowidjojo qualified for the 100m freestyle final in what was a difficult race.
The women’s hockey team also continued to make progress, beating China 1-0 in the dying minutes of their group match.
