Guo Shuang won the women’s 500-meter time trial in record time and teammate Feng Yong took the men’s 1-kilometer time trial with another Asian Games’ record as China claimed both titles contested Saturday in track cycling.
Guo, who trains at the UCI’s world cycling center in Switzerland, won her event in 35.175 seconds, an Asian Games record, well ahead of silver medalist Hsiao Mei Yu of Taiwan, who was clocked at 36.190. You Jin-a of South Korea, racing with a knee injury, was third with a time of 36.961.
“I feel good and proud,” she said. “I tried my best to win the games.”
Feng, the Asian champion, held off Japan’s Yusho Oikawa to win in 1 minute, 4.607 seconds. Oikawa completed the trial in 1:04.775 and third-place finisher Kang Dong-jin of South Korea finished with a 1:04.786.
Oikawa was fastest off the start and held the top slot for the first 250 meters, but Feng shot to the lead and held it to the finish.
