Katie Archibald MBE

Track cyclist and Olympic gold medallist

Katie Archibald made her Great Britain debut at the European Track Championship in 2013 where together with Laura Trott, Dani King and Elinor Barker they team broke the World Record in the team pursuit. She went on to smash that record with the same team and took away two golds at the European Championships in the team pursuit and individual pursuit in 2014. 

She has gone on to win three titles at the 2015 European Championships (team pursuit, individual pursuit and elimination race), two in the omnium in 2016 and 2017 and was four-time European Champion in the individual pursuit between 2014 and 2017. 

She also came home with two medals from the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games – gold in the individual pursuit and silver in the points race. In 2020, at the World Track Championships in Berlin, Katie came home with a silver medal in the team pursuit, alongside her fellow Bespoke M teammate Elinor Barker. 

Looking ahead now, Katie is working hard towards success in Tokyo 2021. 

Katie Archibald said…

Last summer, with the Olympics postponed, we took the opportunity to chat with Elinor Barker and Katie Archibald, both previous Team GB champions who were set to head out to Tokyo to fly the flag for the nation. You can catch up with the evening that Anna Glowinski spent chatting to the track cycling superstars.

Watch for a glimpse into the lives of two of Britain's top cyclists, how they coped with lockdown and changing training plans - as well as playing them off against each other in some seriously competitive activities.
