PETALING JAYA: It's a silver for Azizulhasni Awang (pic) as he overtook Dutch world champion Harrie Lavreysen on the line in the men's keirin final at Izu Velodrome on Sunday (Aug 8).

It was not the gold Malaysia was looking for in the Tokyo Olympics as the wait continues after Britain's Sir Jason Kenny won the keirin title in sensational fashion.

Kenny sprinted out far and kept the pace going till the finish line.

It was still Malaysia's second medal in Tokyo after men's badminton doubles pair Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik won bronze.
