Hong Kong's Lee Wai-sze won praise from a top star after she upset Olympic champion Victoria Pendleton to win a bronze medal in the women's sprint of the World Cup Olympic track cycling test event in London.
Only a year into competing in the Olympic event after switching from the 500-meter time trial, Lee beat Britain's Pendleton 2-1 after losing to eventual champion Guo Shuang of China in the semi-finals.
"She's impressive," said Australia's world champion Ana Meares, who took silver.
"She's shown really good turns of speed previously but tonight she had a little bit more tactical nous about her and I was very impressed with her rides. I thought she was very impressive against Victoria, I think she's one to watch."
Lee was delighted at beating the Beijing Games champion, but admitted she still had a lot to learn.
"I have never won against Pendleton before. This is my best result against a big rider," said Lee.
"I think she was very tired because she had to race three times [against Meares in the semi-finals]."
She added: "Next, I go to the world championships and it will be like school for me. I hope some day I can beat all the women. But I still need to learn a lot."
