    Good start for the Aussies on Day 1.

    Australia 3:56.751 mins crushed the Brits 4:00.967 to win Gold in Men's 4km Team Pursuit.

    Glenn O'Shea, Alex Edmondson, Michael Hepburn and Alex Morgan win the 9th World Championship in this event for Australia.

    Good God they look so young!

    Looks like a changing of the guard for the Aussies - will we start to see the Brits come back to the pack now that the Olympics is over do you think? Or was it just an exceptional day for the Aussies?

    Yeah, bit of a changing of the guard for both Aussies and Brits. The Brits seem to peak more at the Olympics, though.

    We still have some good medal chances coming up this morning (Day 2) available on SBS TV!

    Day two will feature Michael Hepburn and Alex Morgan in the men's 4000 metre individual pursuit where Hepburn is hoping to defend his crown and Morgan is tipped to challenge for a place on the podium.

    The women's team pursuit will also line up with some chance for a medal. Luke Davison will contest the 15km scratch race final.

    The male sprinters kick off their worlds campaign with world champions Scott Sunderland and Matthew Glaetzer teaming with debutant Mitchell Bullen in the men's team sprint. Kaarle McCulloch is on the start list for the women's 500m time trial.

    All class from Hepburn. He adds an individual gold to the team gold from last night!

    Medal placings for men's individual pursuit in Minsk:

    1. Michael Hepburn (Aus),
    2. Martyn Irvine (Irl),
    3. Stefan Kung (Swi)


    Women's team pursuit (Annette Edmondson, Ashlee Ankudinoff and Melissa Hoskins) Silver to Australia, Gold to Great Britain, Bronze to Canada.

    Fantastic ride by Ireland's Martyn Irvine in the men's scratch race, ahead of Andreas Mueller and Australia's Luke Davison. Davison's Bronze doubles the Aussie medal tally from Day 1,and still on top of the table.
