London Olympics 2012: Pendleton Smashes Olympic Record to Secure Top Sprint Seeding.
Pendleton's time was only a fraction slower than the world record of 10.643, set by Germany's Miriam Welte just weeks before London 2012 began.
By securing the top position, Pendleton is likely to avoid meeting long-time rival Meares until the final, which takes place on 7 August.
Pendleton has already claimed one gold at London 2012, in the keirin event. Having recently declared her desire to "smash the sprint", she will be confident of adding another title when the sprint final takes place.
