TEAM TTO top sprint cyclist Nicholas “Nico” Paul became the fastest man ever over the Flying 200m when he sped around the Cochabamba, Bolivia Velodrome yesterday morning, breaking the 2013 world record for the event at the Pan Am Elite Track Cycling Championships.
Paul booked his semi-final spot when he defeated Canadian Nick Wammes in two straight rides in the best of three match-up last evening. Paul still has unfinished business in the Men’s Sprint title at this competition after earning silver behind Canada’s Hugo Barrette at last year’s edition in Mexico.
