Gold for Storey

In an as-expected but none-the-less utterly thrilling Women’s C5 Individual Pursuit Sarah Storey racked up the first gold medal for team GB at the London Paralympics. The 34-year-old, hotly tipped for success at The Games and with an impressive string of titles and records already to her name, streaked passed her opponent – Poland’s Anna Harkowska – little over halfway through the 3km event; she had earlier qualified for the final in a time of 3:32.170 seconds – more than a second better than her 2009 best. New Zealand’s Fiona Southorn took the Silver, with GB’s Crystal Lane in fourth position.
