Alison Shanks wins gold for New Zealand

"NEW DELHI - The wait is over. An exhausted Alison Shanks brought a heady mix of relief and joy to New Zealand after powering to a Commonwealth Games track cycling gold medal here tonight.

After three days of collecting minor medals behind the Australian juggernaut, the track cycling team at last had something to celebrate in unadulterated style after Shanks unveiled a stunning ride in the 3000m individual pursuit.

The Dunedin rider dominated qualifying and produced a lung-busting effort in the final to head off arch-rival Wendy Houvenaghel of Northern Ireland."

Yehaw! Finally something to cheer over... well done Kiwis. Twelve medals to date. Awesome effort.
