World No. 1 Esow Alben wins silver in World Junior Cycling Championships


Cyclist Esow Alben continued his great form when he grabbed yet another medal in the Keirin event during the 2018 World Junior Track Cycling Championships. The youngster came second in his event and won the silver medal. As a result, Alben has now won three gold medals and a silver medal in this calendar year.

The rower-turned-cyclist hails from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands and has been making quite a bit of progress lately.

In February 2018, Alben began to show his true potential, when he won two gold medals in the individual and the team events at the 2018 Asian Track Cycling Championships. He then proceeded to win yet another gold at the championships to make it a hattrick.

However, Alben’s golden moment came later on in June 2018, when he accumulated a total of one thousand one hundred and sixty points (1160) to be crowned the World no. 1 in his age category. As a result, the cyclist from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands created history by becoming the highest ranked player from India in the junior circuits.

Alben continues his progress in the month of June, as he bagged gold medals at the Cottbuser Sprint Cup 2018 and the GP Brno Track Cycling competitions. In the Großer Preis von Deutschland in Sprint competition, he finished third. As a result of his various medal-winning performances, Alben accumulated Five hundred and sixty points (560), which helped him stay on top of the rankings.

It looks like Alben’s great year is set to continue, as he bagged yet another medal. This time around, the youngster from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands bagged the silver medal at the 2018 World Junior Track Cycling Championships.

Alben’s medal-winning run at the World Junior Track Cycling Championships would help him gain some valuable points, as the youngster looks set to continue his reign as the top of the junior rankings.
