Olympics: Shock gold for Anna Kiesenhofer in women's road race

Tokyo Olympics: Women's Road Race - As it happened

Anna Kiesenhofer (Austria) pulled off one of the biggest ever shocks in women's elite road racing to win the gold medal at the Tokyo Olympic Games. 

After questionable tactics from the major nations during the race and a reported lack of communication on the road, Annemiek van Vleuten (Netherlands), who said she was unaware of that Kiesenhofer was still up the road, attacked out of the field with 2km to go and crossed the line thinking she had won the Olympic title only to learn later that she had taken silver. 

Elisa Longo Borghini (Italy) finished with the bronze medal and Lotte Kopecky (Belgium) was fourth, while Marianne Vos (Netherlands) took the small group sprint for fifth. Lisa Brennauer (Germany) was sixth, Coryn Rivera (USA) seventh, Marta Cavali (Italy) eighth, Olga Zabelinskaya (Uzbekistan) ninth, and Uttrup Ludwig 10th.

The elite women's 137km road race started from Musashinonomori Park and included two mid-race climbs over Donushi Road and Kagosaka Pass, for 2,692 metres of elevation gain, before a punchy final at the Fuji International Speedway.

Kiesenhofer, who lined up with no teammates, was part of an early-race move with Carla Oberholzer (South Africa), Vera Looser (Namibia), Omer Shapira (Israel), and Anna Plichta (Poland) that gained more than 10 minutes on the main field. Kiesenhofer was strong enough  to hold on for a solo victory at the Fuji International Speedway.

Tokyo Olympic Games

The 2020 Olympic Games, due to start on July 24 in Tokyo, were forced to be postponed to 2021 by a global pandemic of a new type of coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, that causes in some people severe pneumonia that has resulted in thousands of deaths worldwide.

Even as Japan fought against the Olympics going forward amid low vaccination rates and increasing infections, the world's athletes, supporters and media will begin to arrive in the country for the XXXII Olympiad.

The men's road race takes place on Saturday, July 24 as one of the first events, with superstars like Tadej Pogačar, Primož Roglič, Remco Evenepoel and Wout van Aert among the favourites.

The women's road race is next on July 25, where Anna van der Breggen will try to repeat her gold medal performance with the support of a strong Dutch team.

Mountain bike cross country is next with the men on July 26, where Mathieu van der Poel and Tom Pidcock will try to take the title from the full time riders. The women's field compete on July 27 on the Izu course.

The time trials will be held on the Fuji International Speedway on July 28, with Tom Dumoulin returning from a few months' time-out to try to upgrade his silver in Rio to gold. The women, racing the same day, will see a new champion in the absence of three-time winner Kristin Armstrong. Her compatriot Chloe Dygert is a favourite against the Dutch riders Van der Breggen and Annemiek van Vleuten.

Track cycling closes out the cycling events at the Games, with six events for men and women: Team Pursuit, Team Sprint, Individual Sprint, Keirin, Omnium, and Madison.
