Great Britain take silver in C1-5 team sprint.

Great Britain have been edged out by China to take silver in the C1-5 team sprint.

In an incredibly close final the British team of Jon-Allan Butterworth, Darren Kenny and Rik Waddon almost overturned a half-second deficit but could not quite do enough.

They managed to claw back most of that time but their 49.519 was just beaten by China's world-record effort of 49.454.

This was the last Paralympics track cycling final to be decided.
