Lamoreux is part of the Canadian men’s team pursuit with Michael Foley, Derek Gee and Adam Jamieson.
“[It’s] one spot better than four years ago and 13 seconds faster, so everyone’s really excited about that,” said Gee. “It’s just unreal to be a medalist at the Commonwealth Games.”
Canada opened the cycling events at the Gold Coast with two bronze medals in both the men’s and women’s team pursuits.
Lamoureux and the team originally qualified fourth, but moved up to third after New Zealand was disqualified for having non-regulated equipment.
The Canadian women’s team pursuit also hit the podium, meeting expectations after medaling in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. Allison Beveridge, Ariane Bonhomme, Annie Foreman-Mackey and Steph Roorda were disappointedm however, to miss qualifying for the gold medal final by 0.153 seconds. They regrouped to take the bronze medal against England with a time of 4:21.493. Host Australia won the gold medal after catching New Zealand and setting a new Games record.
