At the last Colombian Worlds in Cali, 2006 X-Tech International star Nicole Begg recorded a last to first win in the 1,000 metre sprint. Still sitting in 4th place going into the last corner the others jammed themselves up. After an earlier warning for crossing the inside line, she virtually skated one footed down the final straight to win by the narrowest of margins. While the other 7 starters were fresh Nicole had finished a very hard 15,000 metre elimination race about an hour before in which she placed 4th.
