Archibald glad to have a silver lining at Euros


By Mark Staniforth

Katie Archibald won her second medal at the European Championships in Glasgow but she was forced to settle for silver in the women's omnium.

The 24-year-old was eclipsed by Dutch world champion Kirsten Wild, who stretched her initial two-point lead to win by 12 in the concluding points race.

Archibald's silver added to the gold she won as part of the women's team pursuit squad on Friday. She said: "I don't think my legs were that terrible but I was just not quite good enough - me and Laura (Kenny) are still a fairly formidable team.

"There wasn't much I could do and I realised quite early on that I didn't have the speed."
