This country’s fastest man on two wheels, Nicholas Paul, along with fellow national Kwesi Browne, both failed to make it to the medal round of the men’s keirin on Saturday night at the Tokyo Olympics, despite an excellent showing from both young men.
In the quarterfinal round, Paul was the fastest in the race, comfortably winning his heat to qualify for the semifinals.
Browne, meanwhile, placed third in his quarterfinal heat and also advanced to the semis.
However, Browne finished fifth in Semifinal 1.
Paul was edged out for fourth in Semifinal 2 and was later disqualified for riding underneath the sprinters’ lane in an attempt to improve his position.
This meant that Paul was unable to compete in the Final 7-12 race, in which Browne finished third, to end the games 9th overall in the men’s keirin.
