Commonwealth Games: Matthew Glaetzer misses out on bronze medal in individual sprint after judges’ decision

Australian cyclist Matthew Glaetzer has been left heartbroken after his bronze medal in the individual sprint was revoked post-race.

Glaetzer’s roller-coaster weekend took yet another turn after judges deemed he was the culprit for a coming together between him and Scotland’s Jack Carlin in the bronze medal race.

The pair went wheel-to-wheel and shoulder-to-shoulder in the third heat of their bronze medal race, before Glaetzer sped away from Carlin to claim a medal.

It came a day after Glaetzer, a gold medal winner in the team sprint, crashed out of the Keirin as he attempted to win his third straight title in that discipline, and the cyclist still bore the visible scars and grazes from Saturday’s clash.
