The gold went to Sweden’s Jenny Rissveds, who was 37 seconds ahead of Włoszczowska. Canada’s Catharine Pendrel took bronze, finishing 49 seconds behind the Polish cyclist.
Włoszczowska repeated her feat from the Beijing Olympics eight years ago, when she also took the silver.
Her second-place finish on Saturday takes Poland's Rio medal tally to 11 - two golds, three silvers and six bronzes.
