The 21-year-old from Aviemore was the pilot for 47-year-old McGlynn, who is partially sighted, claimed third place at the LeeValley Velo Park in London.

It follows the duo winning the silver at the Women’s B Tandem Sprint on Friday.

She won two national track titles in keirin and 500 metres time trial in March.
