Olympics – Yolo BedTime
On the way to the Olympics, Team USA was under pressure to convert its 2020 world championship title in the women’s team pursuit into Olympic gold.
The team struggled with the death of former teammate Kelly Catlin in 2019, a fall of Chloé Dygery 10 months ago, and a nearly year-long COVID lockdown that prevented the women from training or racing together for a bronze medal.
On the way to the final results, Team GB set a new world record, surpassing Team Germany’s mark.
Not to be beaten, Germany established itself for the second time in the three races as the fastest quartet and brought back the world record in the final run.
