Three-time World Track Champion, Kelly Catlin has died at age 23.

US Olympic silver medalist cyclist Kelly Catlin was announced dead on Monday, 11th March.

Catlin was a member of the USA Cycling national team, a runner-up in the women’s team pursuit at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio and was part of three successive world team pursuit triumphs between 2016 to 2018.
