Top sprint cyclist Nicholas “Nico” Paul broke the 2013 200m world record at the Pan Am Elite Track Cycling Championships qualifiers in Bolivia yesterday morning. The TTO cyclist clocked a speed of 9.100-seconds breaking France’s Francois Pervis’s mark of 9.347 seconds.
Paul secured his semi-final spot after winning two rides out of three during the semis. Paul needs to maintain the momentum as he seeks to gain Gold in the Men’s Sprint event.
