RIO DE JANEIRO, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 10th August, 2016) - Veteran American Kristi Armstrong completed a remarkable Olympic cycling hat-trick of gold medals by winning the women's 29.7km time-trial in Rio on Wednesday. Just a day before she turns 43, Armstrong added to her gold medals from Beijing and London to become the first cyclist to win three Games titles in the same discipline.

She posted a time of 44min 26.42sec to edge out Russian Olga Zabelinskaya, who only returned from an 18-month doping suspension last year, by 5.55sec, with Olympic road race champion Anna van der Breggen of the Netherlands third at 11.38sec.
