James has already won bronze in the team sprint and 500m time trial and impressively progressed to the women's sprint quarter-finals - her favourite event. The 21-year old was the only rider to go below 11 seconds in qualifying. That earned her a first-round bye and she comfortably eased past second-round opponent Lisandra Guerra Rodriguez, who had beaten British teenager Vicky Williamson in the first round. Three-time Olympic gold medallist Jason Kenny - fresh from yesterday's disappointment in the men's team sprint - needed two races to progress to the semi-finals of the men's keirin but team-mate Matt Crampton was eliminated.
