England’s Sophie Unwin has been fined for protesting against a decision to not award her a Commonwealth Games bronze medal despite finishing third.
The tandem B sprint had four entries and rules say only gold and silver medals will be issued in such cases.
Para-cyclist Unwin and pilot Georgia Holt borrowed bronze medals from team-mates Laura Kenny and Josie Knight to pose for photographs on the podium.
But the pair have each been fined by cycling’s governing body, the UCI.
The 200 Swiss francs fine has also been issued to England’s cycling team manager Keith Reynolds. The UCI stated the fine was for “failure to respect the instructions of the commissaire/organiser”.
However, BBC Sport understands this is an active issue and Team England is engaged in “high-level” discussions with the Commonwealth Games Federation and want the medal decision overturned.
