‘She had changed’: Did a concussion push Kelly Catlin to a breaking point?
The family of the Olympic cyclist believes a concussion rapidly sent a life of dizzyingly high achievement into a tragic tailspin
Kelly Catlin’s family spent time this week sifting through old photographs of her in action. As a girl it seemed like she tried every sport possible and excelled at them all, from tennis to archery, downhill skiing, pistol shooting, athletics and soccer, before settling on cycling. She was a relentless competitor.
“We’re kind of astounded at the number of different things that she did and she did so well,” said her father, Mark. “It reminds me of what a remarkable talent she was.”
