White, Williams crowned World Champions

Team USA powers to Team Pursuit gold at UCI Track World Championships.

Entering the 2020 UCI Track World Championships in Berlin, Germany, Team USA's Team Pursuit squad had something to prove. 

Despite having previously won titles in 2016, 2017, and 2018, and sporting two new team members to the team in Emma White and Lily Williams, they were going up against a powerful Great Britain squad that beat them in the gold medal finals at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

After blasting through the qualifying rounds of the four-kilometer event, the scene was set. It was going to be a rematch - Team USA vs Team Great Britain. 

A quarter of the way through the main event, Team USA's Chloe Dygert, Jennifer Valente, White, and Williams had built a gap that continued to grow. By the end, they regained the title of World Champions by 1.894 seconds.
