CALGARY, Alberta -- Former Olympic biathlete Robin Clegg of Canada broke his elbow when he was knocked off his bike by a vehicle while cycling outside Calgary.

Ex-Olympian Jason Myslicki says Clegg had surgery Monday to insert a plate into his right elbow. Myslicki says a driver accelerated into the 35-year-old Clegg. Also cycling at the time Sunday was Canadian Olympic cross-country skier Sean Crooks, who called emergency services.

Myslicki says police questioned a male driving a sport utility vehicle. A message left with Cochrane RCMP was not immediately returned.

Clegg, a three-time Olympian, helped Canada finish 10th in the relay at the 2010 Winter Games. Myslicki competed in Nordic combined at two Olympics. The two have retired from their sports but race with the Rundle Mountain Cycling Club in Canmore.
