2024 Olympic Games in Paris: Katie Archibald to miss Games after bizarre garden accident

Britain’s Katie Archibald – cycling gold medallist at the 2016 and 2020 Olympic Games – will miss the Games in Paris next month after breaking her leg in a bizarre accident.

Archibald, 30, broke two bones in her leg and tore ligaments after tripping over a step in her garden.

In a post on Instagram, Archibald said she underwent surgery on Wednesday to treat the fractures and ligament damage.

“I tripped over a step in the garden and somehow dislocated my ankle, broke my tibia and fibula and tore two ligaments from my bone. So what,” said Archibald.
