Sarah Lee Wai-sze dashed into the quarter-final of the sprint event at Tokyo 2020 on Saturday after catching up-and-coming star Mathilde Gros in a late dash for the line. It was an assured, tactically on-point showing from the 34-year-old who has endured a tricky Tokyo 2020 campaign so far, catching the Frenchwoman with a last-ditch lunge for the line after a competitive last-16 heat. Hong Kong’s Lee, a bronze medallist in keirin at the London 2012 Games, has had to make her progress the hard way at Izu Velodrome. The veteran required a repechage win to make the latest round after going down to Great Britain’s Katy Marchant in her initial heat. She also needed to advance via repechage in the opening round of the keirin on Wednesday before ultimately being eliminated at the semi-final stage and finishing in eighth place. Lee, the 2020 World Championship bronze medallist, will now compete in this evening’s quarter-final, which is a best-of-three-races contest.
