Anna Meares blows everyone away

At Revolution 3 tonight, Anna Meares was the main event, and did she deliver the goods? Yes!

Anna's ask to get to Beijing, a 11.77 flying 200.  She's coming back from a broken C2 in a fall early this year.  She's been lucky with a world cup result earlier in the year that saw her keep a chance alive despite no competition for months.

A packed Vodafone Arena, drums beating, heated air to make it less dense.  She's away.  Hitting the line at full speed, 200m done in 11.189 (64.35km/h).  The crowd goes wild.  She made it look easy in the end.

There was other racing on the night, but Anna was the main event, and she showed again what a champion she is. Go Anna. Go go go!
