Returned for selection to the Rio (2016 Olympics) track cycling team. (britishcycling.org.uk, 17 Oct 2017; telegraph.co.uk, 24 Feb 2016) Crashed during the 2016 UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Glasgow, Scotland, and fractured her wrist in three places. Continued with the event and won a gold medal in the madison. Had time off to recover and returned at the UCI Track World Championships in Hong Kong, China. (britishcycing.org.uk, 17 Oct 2017)


Reason: "I only got into the sport for fun, as I loved racing at the weekends. Even when I made it onto the British program, I never thought about the Olympics. Maybe it was naivety or just being youthful." (independent.co.uk, 14 Feb 2015)
Ambition: "Two major personal goals for 2018: Track World Championships in March, at Apeldoorn velodrome, where I hope to defend my omnium title. Then, in April, I hope to tackle both the track and road events at the (2018) Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast, Australia." (msn.com, 16 Oct 2017)
