Jastrab and Ryan Receive Grants For Olympic Efforts

By: Angelina Palermo  February 09, 2021

The USA Cycling Foundation has distributed grants from the Kelly Catlin Fund to Olympic Long Team athletes Megan Jastrab and Kendall Ryan.

Late National Team Athlete, Kelly Catlin

The USA Cycling Foundation continues its efforts of directly supporting athletes to develop American cycling and achieve international success, awarding grants to Megan Jastrab and Kendall Ryan from the Kelly Catlin fund, created in honor of the late National Team athlete.

The Catlin Fund exists in part to support development efforts in women’s track cycling. The grants have been distributed to Megan Jastrab and Kendall Ryan to assist in their pursuit of the Tokyo Olympic Games. Both Jastrab and Ryan are members of the Olympic Long Team and are training to make the final team that will be announced in June 2021. The women have been at the Olympic Training Center, following COVID-19 protocols, in Colorado Springs training for the Women’s Madison and Team Pursuit.

The United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee and USA Cycling do not receive government funding like most foreign national governing bodies competing at international events. With the postponement of the Games, many athletes are doing everything they can to make ends meet while their striving for their Olympic dreams. Donations to the USA Cycling Foundation go directly toward the athletes who need it most as they represent their country at the world’s largest events. Please consider making a donation today in support of the future of American cycling at usacycling.org/foundation/donate and follow Team USA on their #RideToTokyo.
