Birmingham Commonwealth Games: Road cyclist Georgia Williams claims bronze medal in women's time trial

New Zealand's cycling success at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games has extended from the track to the road, as Georgia Williams took home bronze in the women's time trial.

Williams, 28, crossed the line with a time of 41m 25s, just over 1m 20s behind the eventual winner, Australia's Grace Brown.

England's Anna Henderson set the pace earlier, and sat anxiously in her wait for gold, but was forced to settle for silver as Brown crossed the line.

Williams' bronze medal is her second at the Commonwealth Games, after also taking silver from the women's road race on the Gold Coast in 2018.

Fellow Kiwi Mikayla Harvey finished in 20th position, just over 4m 50s behind Brown's winning time, while Henrietta Christie did not start. 

The bronze is New Zealand's 11th, and 37th medal of the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, to go with 15 golds as well as 10 silvers.

Williams' bronze adds to a phenomenal track cycling campaign from the New Zealand team, who won nine golds, five silvers and two bronzes at the velodrome in London.
