Laura Kenny has withdrawn from today’s Omnium because of illness and will be replaced by fellow Olympic champion Katie Archibald.
“I haven’t been feeling right all week - for reasons we’re not sure of," said Kenny, who is a double Olympic champion in the Omnium. "My performances in the team pursuit over the last two days have been well off where I have been in training over the last two weeks.
"It was decided that it was better that I didn’t compete and give someone else the opportunity. I think Katie will do a brilliant job.”
“I know Laura is disappointed she can no longer compete out here in Poland, but it's the right decision for herself and her team-mates," said Stephen Park, performance director for British Cycling.
"Katie deserves credit for stepping in and I’m confident she will put in a strong performance in today’s omnium event.”
