The women arrived in Trinidad, and had a couple of days to figure out the best lines on the track. In the qualifier, they finished with a time 6 seconds faster than the second place Mexicans. They felt that the ride could be improved, and in the gold medal final, put together a much better performance - catching the Mexicans to win the championship.
