Cycling officials heaped praise on the world-class performances of Sarah Lee Wai-sze as the Hong Kong sprinter wrapped up another successful World Cup series in Aguascalientes, Mexico, on Sunday. Lee, 26, captured her third medal of the three-day premier event in the north-central city with a bronze in the women's sprint. This followed a silver medal in the keirin and the bronze she picked up in the 500-metre time trial. "She is maturing all the time as she competes at the highest level," said Hong Kong Cycling Association chairman Leung Hung-tak. "No matter whether it's the keirin or the sprint, which requires different tactics on the track, she can handle it well. "This would not be happening if it were not for the international exposure she has been given, and we will continue to provide the support she needs to compete with the world's best." Despite a week-long holiday in Australia before the event, Lee showed no sign of rustiness when she captured the sprint bronze in a strong field of 26 riders. She made the semi-finals after defeating top British rider Rebecca James in the quarters before setting up an encounter with 2012 Olympic champion Anna Meares of Australia, who proved too strong for Lee, winning both races in the best-of-three tie. In the bronze medal ride-off, Lee easily beat another top British rider, Jessica Varnish, over two races. Kristina Vogel clinched the sprint title, the seemingly unstoppable German sending Meares out with two effortless wins in the final. Vogel, 23, also set a world record in the 200 metres, the qualifier for the sprint, in 10.384 seconds, smashing the old mark of 10.573 seconds by Zhong Tianshi of China achieved in the same venue in January. Vogel was the most successful sprinter, clinching gold in all three events she participated in - the sprint, keirin and team sprint in which she teamed up with Miriam Welte to set a world record in the final. Hong Kong's Cheung King-lok and Leung Chun-wing finished 12th of 18 teams in the men's madison. Promising Pang Yao, 18 and racing in her first major senior competition, was 18th in the women's omnium.
