  • With more than a 40-second lead over her closest rival, Spitz grabbed a German flag from someone in the crowd and waved it as she neared the finish line. She got off her bicycle and held it high as she walked over the finish to take the gold.

    Maja Wloszczowska of Poland took silver and Russian Irina Kalentyeva fought off a battle against Canadian Catharine Pendrel to win the bronze.
