Joanna Rowsell - Olympian Joanna Rowsell Knocked Off Her Bike By Car

British Olympian Joanna Rowsell is recovering after she was knocked off her bike by a car during training.

The champion cyclist, who won a gold medal for Great Britain at the 2012 London Games, was left with minor injuries after the incident on 31 March (13).

Detailing the accident on Twitter.com, she wrote, "First time for everything. Been a cyclist for nearly 9 yrs (years) & never been knocked off by a car until this morning.

"I am Ok. No serious injuries, just cuts and bruises. Bike came off worst (sic)."

Rowsell is not the first British Olympic cyclist to get hit by a car during training - Sir Bradley Wiggins was knocked down near his home in Lancashire, England last November (12).
