Tasmania's Amy Cure  was in the bronze medal ride off this morning (Tastime) after after qualifying third  in the 3000-metre individual pursuit at the Commonwealth Games.

Fellow  Australian Annette Edmondson qualified second and advanced to the  gold medal  final against English star Joanne Rowsell. 

Meanwhile,  rising Australian star Matthew Glaetzer is out of the Commonwealth Games track cycling men's sprint event after English Jason Kenny proved too good for him. 

Glaetzer was the fastest qualifier but Olympic champion Kenny dispatched the youngster two heats to nil in their quarter-final last night. 

Kenny's semi-final in the later session will be against Glaetzer's compatriot Pete Lewis, who beat New Zealander Matthew Archibald 2-0 in their quarter-final. 

After his below-par start to day one, Kenny was looking much more like his normal, dominant self. 

While Glaetzer broke the  Games record for the flying 200m in qualifying on Thursday morning, Kenny was 11th fastest _ and only the top 12 progressed to the match sprints. 

Kenny also lost his opening round sprint and had to win his repechage heat to stay alive. 

He was then part of the English trio that won silver in the team sprint late on Thursday afternoon, losing to world champion New Zealand in the final. 

The other sprint semi-final will be an all-New Zealand contest between Edward Dawkins and Sam Webster.
