Australian track star Anna Meares was taken to hospital in Los Angeles on Sunday evening after crashing out of the women's keirin final at the Track World Cup. Meares, the world record holder and Olympic champion for the 500m time trial, was taken from the Los Angeles Home Depot Center velodrome on a backboard, but was able to move her fingers and toes.
A spokesperson for Cycling Australia told Cyclingnews that Meares had undergone scans after suffering concussion. More information on the rider's condition is expected soon.
