Olympic triathlete Taylor Knibb wins US cycling time trial to earn spot in Paris in a second sport

May 15, 2024

Olympic triathlete Taylor Knibb stunned even herself by winning the women’s time trial at the U.S. road cycling championships.

Now, she will have the opportunity to compete in two different sports at this year’s Paris Games.

That means that Knibb will contest the time trial and road race in Paris alongside Chloe Dygert, who will be heavily favored to win the gold medal in the race against the clock. Dygert is not competing at nationals because she already had qualified for the Olympics by winning the time trial at last year’s world championships. AP
