7-time world champion triathlete, Karen Mckeachie, hit & killed by a car while cycling

Karen McKeachie, a seven-time world champion triathlete, was killed after she was hit by a car while cycling. Believed to be the oldest woman to win a triathlon: a multiple-stage competition involving the completion of swimming, cycling, and running in immediate succession over various distances, the elite athlete was on her bike near the city of Chelsea, US on Friday when she was hit and killed by another vehicle. 63-year-old Karen was inducted into the USA Triathlon Hall of Fame in 2014 and has won US National Championships 17 times.
