ANNETTE Edmondson admitted the success of her South Australian teammate and fellow Olympic medallist Glenn O'Shea motivated her to a third wheelrace win in four carnivals.
At windy West Park, the 21-year-old two- time world championship silver medallist equalled O'Shea's tally of three major wins a few moments before he completed a fourth.
"Glenn was one up on me and he has not mentioned it yet but he may do later," said Edmondson who, like O'Shea, won a silver medal in London five months ago.
"But there's a bit of competition between the SASI team. He's had a brilliant week and I definitely look up to him."
Edmondson was one of four scratch riders in the 2000-metre final also featuring six Malaysians, one of whom, Fatehah Mustapa, joined Amy Cure and Isabella King in getting her up with the frontmarkers by the bell.
From then there was little doubt who would claim the $3000 first prize, with Edmondson leading home Perth's Georgia Baker (off 120 metres) and Malaysian Ju Pha Som Net (190m).
"It was pretty tough in that wind," said Edmondson, who also won the wheelraces at Latrobe and Launceston this week.
"We knew we would have to work hard together and the other scratch girls did a brilliant job.
"We were hoping to get Bella up but I'm happy with another win.
"I had a successful year last year and I came here wanting more."
