Defending champion Joanna Rowsell finished fourth in the women’s individual pursuit as Great Britain failed to win a medal on day three of the Track World Championships.

Rowsell was part of the women’s team pursuit squad which saw their four-year unbeaten run ended on Thursday’s second day in Saint-Quentin-En-Yvelines, near Paris, picking up silver behind Australia.

Rowsell won her first solo world title in the three-kilometres individual pursuit in Colombia last year, but qualified in fourth.

The 26-year-old met Amy Cure in the ride-off for bronze and once again Australia prevailed.

Cure clocked three minutes 32.907 seconds to Rowsell’s 3mins 36.330secs.

Katie Archibald, who was also in the British team which won silver on day two, clocked 3:31.276 to place fifth in qualifying and miss out on a ride for a medal.

Britain have two medals from the opening three days of competition, both silvers in the team pursuit disciplines.
