Australia's Anna Meares and Kaarle McCullough successfully defended their team sprint title at the world track cycling championships on Thursday in Copenhagen, Denmark by beating China into a silver medal.

McCullough said afterwards, "We're so happy so have defended our title, and really excited obviously going into the London Games being the best team in the world."

Meares, who already earned gold in the 500 meter time trial, set a new world record with McCullough by clocking a time of 32.923 seconds. Lithuania took out the British pair of Victoria Pendleton and Jessica Varnish to earn the bronze.

The victory bodes well for the Australian track team ahead of the London Olympic Games in 2012, where program changes now have the women's team sprint included as an event.
