Olympic track cyclist Kelly Catlin died Friday at her home in California at the age of 23. Catlin’s father, Mark Catlin, told VeloNews that his daughter took her own life. Catlin helped the U.S. women’s pursuit team win the silver medal at the Rio de Janeiro Games in 2016. USA Cycling chief executive Rob DeMartini said in a statement Sunday that “the entire cycling community is mourning this immense loss. We are offering continuous support to Kelly’s teammates, coaches and staff. We also encourage all those who knew Kelly to support each other through the grieving.” Catlin also raced on the road for the Rally UHC Pro Cycling Team, and was pursuing a graduate degree in computational mathematics at Stanford.
