Sarah Storey equals GB record for Paralympic wins

Thursday September 6, 2012

Cyclist Sarah Storey has won her 11th gold medal, putting her equal with swimmer Dave Roberts and Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson as Britain's greatest Paralympian.

The 34-year-old, who has already won the road time trial, the 500m time trial and the individual pursuit earlier in the London 2012 Games, stormed to victory in the road race by a huge margin.

After finishing the race she excitedly said: "I can't believe I pulled it off... It's amazing. I'm just so pleased to be British."

Sarah hasn't only won medals for cycling, as a teenager she won five paralympic golds for swimming, making her the most successful Paralympic all-rounder.

With 11 golds, seven silvers and three bronze medals, Sarah is now officially Britain's most decorated female Paralympian.
