ODD ANDERSEN/AFP/GETTY IMAGES Tara Whitten competes in the women’s omnium individual pursuit event of the cycling competition at the London Games on Aug. 7, 2012. Whitten was tied for third after four of six events in the omnium.
LONDON—Canadian Tara Whitten missed out on another Olympic medal Tuesday when she finished fourth in the six-race omnium at the Olympic Velodrome.
Fourth overall overnight, the former two-time world champion moved into a tie for third with Australian Annette Edmonson after the three-kilometre individual pursuit.
But Edmonson then won the 10-kilometre scratch race, relegating the 32-year-old Edmonton rider back to fourth.
Whitten, who won bronze in the women’s team pursuit on Saturday, was unable to make up the deficit in the final time trial.
Britain’s Laura Trott won gold, while American Sarah Hammer took silver. Edmonson finished with the bronze.
