Kate Middleton: Duchess of Cambridge and ... cyclist at the Rio Olympics? 

At least  one French outlet  seems to think French Olympic cyclist Pauline Ferrand-Prevot looks an awful lot like British royalty — and Princess Kate should be honored.

Ferrand-Prevot is competing in two events at the Rio Olympics, and she came into the games with a sick resume. 

In 2015, the 24-year-old racer became the first person in history to hold the world road title, cyclo-cross title and mountain bike title at the same time. 

And Ferrand-Prevot is competing with a  pinched nerve in her hip , saying that botox injections have helped ease the pain. 

The French cyclist hasn't had a win this season, but she does have a chance at  another record  if she wins gold in the women’s road race and the cross-country.
