Disappointment for Dubnicoff

Globe and Mail Update


Any medal hopes for Canadian cyclist Tanya Dubnicoff in the sprint event died on the track at the Dunc Gray Velodrome Tuesday night.

She lost to the Ukraine's Iryna Yanovych in the quarterfinals and failed to advance.

Dubnicoff, 30, is competing in her third Games. She has tasted victory often on the international stage. She was the first cyclist to win a gold medal at three consecutive Pan American Games, and she won the sprint at the 1998 Commonwealth Games.

She finished out of the medals at the Atlanta Olympics four years ago.
