Phillip advances in the Keirin

By Donstan Bonn

Njisane Phillip booked a spot in the second round of the men's Keirin when he secured third place in his first round repechages heat at the Velodrome on Tuesday (August 7).

He crossed the finish line in fourth but was elevated to third after China's Zhang Miao was relegated "for not having held his line during the last 200 meters of the race".

Phillip will now compete for a berth in the final.
