Great Britain and Manchester Paralympic heroine Sarah Storey won her third gold medal at the London 2012 Games with a superb performance in the women’s C5 time-trial at Brands Hatch.
The 34-year-old was dominant from the off, storming to the lead in the 16km race to finish in 22minutes 40seconds and now has ten gold medals – just one off Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson’s record haul of 11.
And having won her third out of a possible four gold medals, the former Olympic swimming champion could not hide her elation.
She said: “I’m absolutely delighted. It’s just amazing to get around the circuit so quick.
“The first thing I’m going to do is see where I would have placed in the men’s race.”
Storey first appeared at the Paralympics in 1992 Barcelona in the pool – where she won five titles before suffering from a series of ear infections and was forced to turn her attention to cycling.
