Cornwall at the Olympics: Friday

(Updated 6:19pm 3rd August 2012)
Bodmin cyclist Wendy Houvenaghel and Team GB have qualified for the final of the women's team pursuit in first place.
Their time of 3.15.669 on Friday has set a new world record.
The girls go for gold in the velodrome on Saturday.
Wendy rides for Bike Chain Bissoe when she is not in Team GB colours.
Owner Ricci Pascoe said: "She popped into the store with her husband ten years ago. She thought she was going to get fit and maybe ride a bike. She did a few local events, started winning local time trials and within the space of eight to ten months, was actually beating the regional men, so quite clearly the girl had a talent."
Elsewhere, Restronguet sailor Ben Ainslie claims his Olympic rivals are ganging up on him.
He has taken a penalty turn after two competitors claimed he had hit a mark.
He vigorously denies that.
The gold medal hopeful says they have made him angry and they do not want to do that.
Ainslie is now two points off the lead going into the medal race, after finishing first in his final race on Friday.
That means he just has to finish ahead of the Danish leader to grab an unprecedented fourth Olympic gold medal in the Finn Class.
Team mate Luke Patience said: "He's the name in the sport. Ben Ainslie. Sailing. Sailing. Ben Ainslie. As long as I can remember in my short career it's been Ben Ainslie, Ben Ainslie, Ben Ainslie. He's been doing it forever and he's not showing any signs of slowing down.
"We're all proud to be walking around in a team with him. He does bring something extra being that succesful and maybe about to do something that's never been done before and make history again. It's cool to be a part of that, really cool."
