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.
Now, she is getting ready to compete at her second major event since making her return at the 2019 Track World Championships in Apeldoorn, Netherlands.
In 2016, Storey cemented her position as her country’s most decorated female Paralympian with 14 gold, eight silver and three bronze medals won in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
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.
She also won another five at Atlanta 1996 – three of which were gold. Her success in the pool continued with two silvers at Sydney 2000 and two silvers and a bronze at Athens 2004.
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.
