Women's team pursuit – cycling

Australia’s women's team pursuit squad members Annette Edmondson, Ashlee Ankudinoff, Amy Cure and Melissa Hoskins beat the world record by 2.9 seconds at the Paris 2015 Track World Championships in February. The team has been together since 2011 and after increasing the squad’s support network in the past 12 months it has lifted to another level. Part of the team’s success has come from the members’ commitment to base themselves at Cycling Australia’s high performance unit in Adelaide one year out from the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
