JAKARTA: Hong Kong's Sarah Lee Wai-sze eased into women's sprint final as she went in search of her second track cycling gold at the Asian Games on Friday.

The defending champion, who set a tournament-record 10.583 seconds in Thursday's qualifying round, beat South Korea's Cho Sun-young in two straight races.

The 31-year-old former Olympic keirin bronze medallist goes into a final against South Korea's Lee Hye-jin, who upset China's Zhong Tianshi in three races.

Zhong, who won team sprint gold at the 2016 Olympics, will now fight it out for bronze with Cho.

Malaysia's "Pocket Rocketman" Azizulhasni Awang will also seek his second title at the continental games in Jakarta when he starts as the favourite in the keirin.
