English Olympic champion Matt Walls has been injured after being catapulted over the barriers and into a horrified crowd in another high-speed crash at London’s velodrome.
Walls was being treated for injuries in the stands of the Lee Valley VeloPark after he was caught up in a multi-rider crash on the final lap of the Commonwealth Games 15km scratch race qualifier on Sunday.

British Cycling reported he would be going to hospital along with another rider, Isle of Man’s Matt Bostock, who had to be taken out of the sand on a stretcher.
One man in the crowd received treatment for cuts to his arm while a young girl also received minor attention.
Spectators were left ducking for cover after Olympic omnium champion Walls, high on the banking, was sent spiraling into the air, landing in the front seating section of the arena.
Walls was riding up the banking trying to avoid others who had fallen lower down, and appeared to clip another wheel before being sent flying over the top.
