Tasmanian cyclist Amy Cure has capped off her golden run at the Oceania Track Cycling Championships by completing a hat-trick of dominant performances.
West Pine's 26-year-old dual Olympian had already won both the omnium and points race by sizeable margins but went a step further in the last race on the elite women's program in the New Zealand city of Invercargill.
Cure teamed up with South Australian Alexandra Manly in the madison, to establish a formidable points total of 77 - more than three times the 25 of New Zealand silver medallists Michaela Drummond and Jessie Hodges.
Of the 12 sprints, Manly and Cure won 10 and were third in another. Their total was just eight points short of the maximum available.
It’s been far from an easy past 6 months. Read all about how I have been dealing with adversity as I face one of my hardest challenges yet. I want to thank Anthony for the great moments we have shared but now it’s time for the next chapter of my life. https://t.co/jy2AAXZHJy— Amy Louise Cure (@amylcure) March 27, 2019
Fresh from a gold medal in the team pursuit and eighth place in the elite men's points race, Launceston's Josh Duffy partnered with Conor Leahy to a 10th-place finish in the men's madison won by Australian world and Commonwealth champions Kelland O'Brien and Sam Welsford.
In addition to Cure and Duffy in national colours, Tasmanian Institute of Sport coach Matthew Gilmore took a team of four to the titles, consisting of Launceston's Amy Wright and Lauren Perry plus Burnie duo Dalton Stretton and Lachlan Spurr.
Spurr finished 10th of the 11 finalists in the junior men's keirin.
Held over four days on New Zealand's South Island, the championships consisted of 40 events across elite and under-19 categories for men and women.
