GLASGOW: Malaysia’s top woman cyclist Fatehah Mustapa will race for the Commonwealth Games bronze medal in the women’s sprint event on Sunday.
The 25-year-old former Asian keirin champion lost to Olympic champion Stephanie Morton of Australia in the semi-finals at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow on Saturday.
It will be an all-Australian final with Morton taking on Anna Meares.
Meares defeated Jess Varnish of England in the other semi-final.
Morton had little difficulty easing past Fatehah in the semi-final but she can expected a much sterner test against Meares, who is on course for her sixth gold medal in Commonwealth Games track cycling.
Australia have already won 10 medals in track cycling, including three golds, and expect to add to that haul.
Meanwhile, Jupha Somnet of Malaysia finished sixth in the women’s 10km scratch race.
The track squad have been set a gold medal target in the hope of equalling their best-ever performance in New Delhi four years ago. Then, Malaysia returned home with one gold, one silver and one bronze.
