The 21-year-old former Forres Academy pupil finished in second place with Aileen McGlynn in the Women’s B Tandem Sprint.

They reached the final before losing 2–0 in the final to Australia's pairing.

But Stone was pleased to at least achieve a place on the podium and paid tribute to McGlynn.

She said: "Aileen has got so much experience, which makes it so much easier to ride because she gives me all the tips and stuff, and I don't think I could have done it with anyone else."

McGlynn said: "Ellie’s been fantastic, coming in at the last minute and piloting me – she’s done an amazing job.

"We've only been riding together for like 12 weeks. Ellie has never ridden a tandem before, never ridden tri bars. She done an amazing job, and I'm so grateful to her for getting me a silver medal."
