Fake medal ceremony sees English pair fined by UCI at Commonwealth Games

The UCI has slapped para-cyclist Sophie Unwin and her pilot Georgia Holt with fines after the pair enacted a ‘fake’ ceremony with borrowed medals at the Commonwealth Games. 

Despite placing third in the Tandem B sprint event on the track, the pair were not officially awarded bronze medals because only four teams had taken part, with regulations stating that only gold and silver medals are to be awarded in that case.
