Great Britain's Becky James wins Olympic silver in the women's keirin at the Rio Games, capping off a recovery from a knee injury and overcoming a cancer scare.
Great Britain cyclist Becky James has won Olympic silver in the women's keirin in Rio with a late surge down the back straight.
The 24-year-old missed the London Games and then had approximately 18 months out with a knee injury and a cancer scare.
She was last with one lap to go but found a way around the outside to force her way into second on the line to win Team GB's fourth medal on the track.
James's silver medal came just minutes after Laura Trott became the first British woman to win three gold medals as she won team pursuit gold in a new world-record time.
Elis Ligtlee of the Netherlands led from the front to win gold, with Australian Anna Meares in third.
