Gold medallist Paulie van der Waal became the second Australian to take gold in the men’s road race, after fellow walker Ryan Hogg secured his second medal of the day.

His two first-time competitors, Tom Stannard and Christian Welch, were on track to win together in the early stages.

World silver medallist Peter Sagan finished one place behind Van der Waal in the lead group after picking up the silver medal in the men’s road race.

It was a disappointing result for the former New Zealand World Champion, who had struggled to make it past the podium, but was one of the better young runners in his class.

British veteran Stephen Cummings (Hook, London) was third in the men’s road race behind American Justin Gatlin and British silver medallist Nathan Haas.
