Posted: Updated:

World champion and defending gold medalist Jason Kenny will race against his British teammate Callum Skinner on Sunday for the men’s individual sprint final.  


And to make the situation a bit more awkward, they are reportedly roommates in Olympic village.


Kenny defeated Russian cyclist Denis Dmitriev in the semi-finals after a dropping the first race in a three-race series.


Skinner beat one of the heavy favorites in the sprint Australia’s Matthew Glaetzer.



Kenny is the clear favorite to beat Skinner who already won gold for Great Britain in team pursuit. Kenny, Skinner and Philip Hindes won the men's team sprint gold as well.


That won’t be the only touchy subject among the British cyclists in the Olympic village.


Owain Doull, men’s team pursuit gold medalist, tweeted out this photo of a note the British women’s pursuit team left out for their male counterparts:



From the sounds of it, the Brits are having a little fun off the track… and certainly winning on it.
