Olympic Cyclist Laura Kenny faces slim odds for Paris Olympics

Posted : 05 March 2024

Laura Kenny's chances of competing at the Paris Olympics appear slim, according to British Cycling's performance director, Stephen Park. Despite being Britain's most successful female Olympian, having given birth to her second son Monty in July, Kenny has not resumed team training, hindering her chances of participating in her fourth Games in 2024. With the Paris Olympics scheduled for 26 July-11 August, April's Track Nations Cup in Canada represents Kenny's final opportunity to accumulate the necessary UCI points for Olympic qualification.


Park highlighted the challenges facing Kenny, emphasizing the need for her to achieve competitive form and participate in qualifying events. The task involves navigating both individual qualification requirements and demonstrating competitiveness within an increasingly competitive team environment. Kenny, who boasts five Olympic gold medals and one silver, has been pursuing an individualized training regimen as she aims for a potential appearance at the World Championships in October.


While Kenny remains optimistic about her prospects, Park emphasized the need for her to make a clear decision regarding Olympic participation in a timely manner to avoid missing out on the opportunity. Despite the uncertainties surrounding her return, Park expressed confidence in Kenny's abilities and suggested that she would continue to contribute to the GB cycling team both on and off the track in the future. As Kenny works towards regaining her competitive edge, she is mindful of not impeding the progress of her teammates and remains committed to supporting their development.
