BIOGRAPHY

A former heptathlete who trained under the guidance of Jessica Ennis-Hill’s coach Toni Minichiello, Katy Marchant was chosen to make her Olympic Games debut as a cyclist at Rio 2016.

She switched to cycling full time in 2013 and the next year won two bronze medals at the European Under-23 Track Cycling Championships in Portugal.

In 2015 Marchant went even better at those same Championships, winning keirin gold and team sprint silver, the latter alongside Vicky Williamson.

The Yorkshire-born athlete beat Elis Ligtlee in the individual sprint to claim bronze at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
