Tokyo Olympics LIVE RESULTS: Holly Bradshaw bronze medal in pole vault, Matt Walls WINS, Katy Marchant horror crash

TEAM GB have struck gold on the cycling track on Day 13 of the Olympics.

Matt Walls dominated the Men's Omnium to secure gold at the Izu Velodrome.

But elsewhere in the cycling there wasn't such good news with Katy Marchant crashing out and Jason Kenny eliminated in the Men's Sprint quarter-final.

However, it was better news for Jack Carlin, who has advanced to the semi-final of the same event.

Meanwhile Liam Heath has claimed a bronze medal in the men's sprint canoe 200m, but didn't defend his Olympic title from Rio five years ago.

Dina Asher-Smith has returned to the track in the 4x100m relay as the Brits BLITZED the field to set the fastest time in the heats.

The British women set a national record of 41.55sec and are the favourites going into the final and the men are also in the final after finishing second in their semi.

For Katarina Johnson-Thompson's boyfriend Andrew Pozzi it was seventh in the 110m hurdles final.

Flyweight Galal Yafai is through to Saturday's gold medal match after beating Sake Bibossinov of Kazakhstan by split decision.

    'BRAVE'

    American superstar gymnast Simone Biles has admitted that she feels' 'brave' after putting her mental wellbeing first by pulling out of five events at Tokyo 2020.

    She told the Today Show: "I thought that was brave of me, because if you would have asked me a couple of years ago, I would have kept pushing through.

    "But I'm at the age now where I kind of control my mental and wellbeing and I knew that it was the best decision for the team and myself."

    'I WAS REALLY AFRAID'

    Simone Biles believes that the abuse she suffered at the hands of Larry Nassar 'probably' contributed to her mental health struggles at Tokyo 2020.

    The American superstar suffered from 'twisties' at the Games, as she lost faith in her ability to execute her incredible routines.

    Growing up, Biles was one of hundreds of gymnasts to be abused by serial paedophile and former US team doctor Larry Nassar.

    And speaking to Hoda Kotb on the Today Show, she admitted that the harrowing abuse 'probably' affected her in Tokyo.

    She said: "Now that I think of it, maybe in the back of my head, probably, yes, because there are certain triggers that you don't even know.

    "And I think [the abuse] could have [affected me]."

    Early this morning Liam Heath won bronze in the Canoeing K1 200m sprint, following up his gold in the event from Rio 2016.

    Jack Carlin is also through to the semi-finals of the Men's sprint, but defending champion Jason Kenny was knocked out at the quarter-final stage.

    There was also success in the Boxing, with Galal Yafai reaching the final of the Men's flyweight division after a split decision victory over Kazakhstan's Saken Bibossinov.

    On the Athletics track both Team GB's Men and Women's teams qualified for the final of the 4x100m relay, with the Women's team setting a new British record in the process.
