Team Sprint, Men

Date17 September 2000
StatusOlympic
LocationDunc Gray Velodrome, Bass Hill, New South Wales
Participants36 from 12 countries

This was the Olympic début for the Olympic sprint. The Olympic sprint is a team sprint event, similar to a shorter team pursuit, with each team consisting of three riders. Two teams compete against each other, starting on opposite sides of the track, with the goal being to finish three laps of the track first. Each of the three riders leads their team for a single lap. The time for the final rider to finish the third lap is the time for the team. World Championships had only been contested in the team sprint since 1995.

Qualifying among the 12 teams was led by France, Great Britain, Australia, and Greece, in that order. And that was also the order of final placement, France winning the gold medal over Britain, not unexpectedly as they had won the last three World Championships.
