Three-time world champion Kelly Catlin dies aged 23

USA Cycling says it has suffered a "devastating loss" with the death of Kelly Catlin, a track cyclist who helped the women's pursuit team win silver at the 2016 Rio Games.

"We are deeply saddened by Kelly's passing", said USA Cycling president and chief executive Rob DeMartini. We are offering continuous support to Kelly's team-mates, coaches and staff. "It breaks our hearts to think about it, because we were close to Kelly". A model of Sputnik. He also helped spur her interest in data science. "So, that was kind of different".

Catlin was raised in Arden Hills and went to Mounds View High School. "I think it's important that people like her not be pushed too hard, because she could never say no". Was it worth it? She quickly rose through the ranks, winning the Minnesota state cyclo-cross championships and then landing on the podium in her first national road championships in 2013 in the Junior 15-18 category. The 23-year-old's cause and manner of death was ruled as asphyxia by suicide, the Santa Clara County coroner's office confirmed to Radar.

Catlin won consecutive track world titles in the team pursuit in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

But Catlin's talent went well beyond cycling. No matter what you are going through in life, taking a step back does not mean failure, and reaching out does not make you weak.

"Being a graduate student, track cyclist, and professional road cyclist can instead feel like I need to time-travel to get everything done", she wrote.

"Kelly also put the most amount of pressure on herself of any athlete I have worked with and often we would have disagreements on me trying to get her to take on, and do, less". But the truth is that most of the time, I don't make everything work. "Easy. I don't balance them". "... After all, I somehow make everything work, right?" This is a lesson I have only just begun learning, slowly and painfully, these first few months as a graduate student. "We could get her to talk, but we wondered, 'what has happened to our Kelly?'", he said.

"Do you want an example?" Kelly - who is one of a set of triplets - leaves behind her sister and brother, Colin, and her parents, Mark, 66, and Carolyn Emory, 67.

"She's the one person I had shared nearly my. entire life with, and I shall miss her terribly", he wrote in the post.
