Skinner won the men's keirin title on Friday while Paul successfully defended his sprint title on Saturday. "It feels great to win," said Paul. "It's the last day of the championships and everyone is pretty tired but it's a good way to finish."
The women's team sprint teed up a nail-biting gold medal race with only five hundredths of a second separating top-placed Edinburgh RC from rivals City of Edinburgh RC after qualifying.
A re-start due to a mechanical issue only added to the tension before Alison Chisholm and Eleanor Richardson (Edinburgh RC) claimed victory with Emma Baird and Jennifer Davis (City of Edinburgh RC) having to settle for the silver. Lulu Bartlett and Rebecca Dornan (The Racers) took the bronze.
Richardson had already taken gold in the women's 500m time trial on Saturday, while for Baird it was her fourth visit to the podium adding to an impressive medal haul which included double gold in the women's keirin and sprint, and silver in the 500m time trial.
Kate Mccullough Young (City of Edinburgh RC) took gold in the junior women's 500m time trial clocking 40.051sec, adding to her victory in the junior women's sprint from Saturday while Louise Borthwick (Edinburgh RC), winner of the junior women's keirin earlier in the weekend, claimed gold in the junior women's point race.
Mark Stewart (Team ASL360) triumphed in the junior men's points race, his fourth gold of the championships having already taken the junior men's keirin, sprint and madison titles.
