Trott triumphs again.

Summary: Olympic champion Laura Trott's Midas touch continued with gold in the women's omnium on the final day of the Track World Cup in Glasgow.

Olympic and world champion Laura Trott's Midas touch continued with gold in the women's omnium on the final day of the Track World Cup in Glasgow.

Trott won team pursuit gold on day one of competition at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome and was seeking her second title to complete a sensational year.

The 20-year-old won the fourth event, the individual pursuit, but was seventh in the scratch race to fall behind Ashlee Ankudinoff overall by two points.

It meant she had to beat the Australian by a minimum of two places in the final event, the 500 metres time-trial, to win - and she duly did.

Trott clocked 35.867 seconds to place second in the discipline, with Ankudinoff fourth to slip to second overall. Russia's Tamara Balabolina was third.
