RIO DE JANEIRO-Jason Kenny won a controversial men's keirin in Rio on Tuesday to claim a British record-equalling sixth Olympic title. The 28-year-old matched the feat of six gold medals and one silver achieved by the man he succeeded as Olympic keirin champion, cycling legend Chris Hoy.

"I'm so tired, I'm floating through it. I don't know really, I turned up here in a funny mood earlier on because I was happy -- not that I'm always unhappy," Kenny told the BBC. "Pretty mental really (to equal Hoy's record) to come here and do the same is amazing." It was a golden double as Kenny's girlfriend Laura Trott had earlier won the women's omnium. Kenny has won three gold medals at these Games and Trott two, taking their combined total to 10. "Not bad is it, 10 medals," beamed Kenny.

The keirin final had to be restarted twice after false starts but no-one was disqualified as Matthijs Buchli of the Netherlands won silver with Azizulhasni Awang of Malaysia taking bronze. Kenny and Awang looked to have infringed the first time while German world champion Joachim Eilers was heading the field the second time, although television replays suggested he'd done nothing wrong.

But Kenny held his nerve, to the delight of Hoy. "It's character -- just fantastic. This is a really special moment. Phenomenal performance tonight and all week," said Hoy.

'Stroppy' Trott claims historic fourth gol: Trott crushed the opposition to retain her women's track cycling omnium title and become the first British woman to win four Olympic gold medals Tuesday. With the victory, the 24-year-old clinched her second successive team pursuit and omnium double after she also won both events at London in 2012. "I can't believe it, I did not expect that at all. I'm just so happy," Trott told the BBC. "It has all come together -- what a day. I'm literally over the moon. It's down also to the backroom team who have put up with me being stroppy at times. To be able to repeat my London success -- I just can't explain what I'm feeling right now."

America's two-time omnium world champion Sarah Hammer took silver for the second time in a row with Jolien d'Hoore of Belgium rounding off the podium. Hammer has won a silver medal in all four of Trott's golden triumphs. Trott, also the world champion, came into the last of the event's six disciplines with a commanding lead of 24 points after coming first in three of the previous races and second in the other two.

She seemed to be simply enjoying herself during the final points race, extending her lead as Hammer and d'Hoore battled behind her. Australia's Annette Edmondson, the 2015 world champion, had been in medal contention before the points race but was totally out of sorts and fell away meekly, finishing eighth overall.
