Summary

From 1995-2001 all the World Championships in the kilometer were won by Australia’s Shane Kelly and France’s Arnaud Tournant, and they were the two favorites. The 16 riders went off in reverse order of their seeding. Jason Queally (GBR) was the 13th rider off, with the leader at that time Sören Lausberg (GER) with 1:02.937. Queally recorded 1:01.609 and did not understand the time when he saw it on the board, not realizing it was his own time, which bettered his personal best by over 1.6 seconds. Germany’s Stefan Nimke rode next but with 1:02.487 did not challenge Queally. Shane Kelly went off next-to-last and he could not better either Queally or Nimke. Tournant started last and not only did not win, but failed to win a medal, his time of 1:03.023 placing only fifth, as Queally, a former water polo player and triathlete, won a very surprising gold medal.
