US Cyclist Kelly Catlin Dies at 23
The Olympic silver medalist, who won three consecutive world titles with the U.S. women’s cycling team, committed suicide Friday, according to her father. In addition to professional road and track cycling, Catlin was a computational mathematics graduate student at Stanford. She recently wrote that her busy schedule made her feel like she needed “to time-travel to get everything done.” She added, “The truth is that most of the time, I don’t make everything work.”
Are U.S. suicides on the rise? It appears so: In 2017, the rate rose to 14.5 deaths per 100,000 — a 4 percent increase.
