Sarah Storey enjoyed a successful comeback to Great Britain’s Para cycling team at the 2018 Road World Championships in Maniago, Italy, after giving birth to her second child Charlie. She won double gold in the women´s road race and time trial C5 to take her overall Worlds medals tally to 20.
Her previous competition had been nothing less than the Paralympics in Rio, where she cemented her position as her country’s most decorated female Paralympian with 14 gold, eight silver and three bronze medals.
Prior to Rio, in March 2016 she won the individual pursuit at the Track World Championships in Italy.
Storey originally started as a swimmer and only took up cycling after a serious ear infection in 2005 kept her out of the pool for several months.
She made her Paralympic debut aged 14 at Barcelona 1992, where she won five medals including two golds.
In Beijing in 2008, so impressive was her time in the cycling individual pursuit final that it would have secured her a top-eight finish in the Olympic final.
At London 2012, she was in outstanding form winning two track and two road Paralympic golds. For her achievements at London 2012 she was appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) in the 2013 New Year Honours.
She is also a member of the IPC Athletes’ Council.
