BIOGRAPHY

Of the 14 senior track medals Katie Archibald had to her name by August 2017, only three were not gold.

The first came in 2013, when the Scottish cyclist helped Great Britain to team pursuit gold at the European Championships.

At Archibald's home Commonwealth Games, Glasgow 2014, she claimed bronze in the points race - the same year which saw her accrue the first of her two World Championship crowns.

Two years later at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, she was part of the quartet which won gold in the team pursuit, alongside Laura Kenny, Elinor Barker and Joanna Rowsell Shand.

The Surrey-born rider's ability to peak when it mattered was underlined by fruitful years in 2017 and 2018 at the World and European Championships.

She claimed a third world title with Madison victory in Apeldoorn, before returning to Glasgow for European team pursuit gold again with Kenny and Barker again at her side.

With Commonwealth Games glory all that had eluded her, Archibald emerged from the Gold Coast with individual pursuit gold and a silver in the points race to boot.
