Five-time Olympic gold medallist Laura Kenny has a "slim chance" of making the GB squad for the Paris Olympics this summer, Great Britain Cycling Team performance director Stephen Park has said. 

Kenny, the reigning Madison champion, gave birth to her second child last July, and has been making a steady return to training. She has not raced in competition since late 2022.
