After the nation fell in love with our roaring Olympic cyclists, it’s the turn of GB’s para-cyclists to dish up drama in the Velodrome. A key member of the squad in action today is Sarah Storey, one of the few athletes to have won gold medals in entirely separate sports – first in
swimming, then in cycling. She won swimming golds at the 1992 Paralympics in Barcelona (aged 14), then three more at Atlanta. After switching to cycling in 2005 she won two more golds at Beijing and will be looking for her eighth overall in today’s individual C5 pursuit.
Meanwhile, teammate Darren Kenny will be defending his C3 1km time trial title alongside Beijing silver medallist Rik Waddon.
