Sarah Storey has won the 10th Paralympic gold medal of her career with victory in the women’s C5 16-kilometre time trial.
The 34-year-old, who had already won two gold medals on the track at this Games, won in a time of 22.40.
She will now attempt to better Tanni Grey-Thompson’s record of 11 Paralympic gold medals by winning tomorrow’s road race.
She said: “It’s just amazing to get around the circuit so quick. I’m just so chuffed. I went into Beijing as a swimmer on a bike, almost a fish out of water.
“My body shape’s changed a huge amount since then and now I’m firmly a cyclist. To think I’ve done what I did in swimming, now on a bike, it’s not sunk in at all. I’m not sure it ever will.”
Sarah Storey is one half of the most decorated couple in British sport. Husband, Barney, a pilot for track tandem partner, Neil Fachie, has won two golds at London 2012.
