New Zealand cyclist Aaron Gate has picked up his fourth gold medal of the Birmingham Commonwealth Games. His latest success came by winning the 160km road race in a sprint finish.

Gate beat South African Daryl Impey and Finn Crockett of Scotland to add another gold to his track medals in the team and individual pursuit, and the points race.

It was New Zealand’s 18th gold medal of the games. New Zealand’s previous best was eating the previous record of 17 in 1990.

Gate was happy afterwards say that he “came here to win the team pursuit and when we ticked that off I was kind of hoping that momentum would carry through, but I definitely didn’t believe it would be this kind of momentum. It still hasn’t sunk in yet.”
