Britain's Becky Jamnes added gold in the women's keirin to her sprint title on the closing day of the world track cycling championships here on Sunday.

The 21-year-old Welsh star beat home China's Gong Jinjie and Lisandra Guerra of Cuba.

Germany's Kristian Vogel, beaten in Saturday's sprint final by James, had her hopes of gaining revenge dashed when she fell.

James was registering Britain's fifth gold medal at the 2013 championships.
