Sarah Storey claims title of Women's Individual Pursuit LC1-2/CP4

Full Results

Sarah Storey of Great Britain claimed title of the Women's Individual Pursuit LC1-2/CP4 of the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games Cycling Track event with 3 minutes 36.637 seconds on September 10, 2008.

American Jennifer Schuble claimed the silver and JingPing Dong from China won the bronze.

Sarah Storey had kicked off the latest gold rush when she scorched round the track to set a world record of 3:36.637 in the women’s individual pursuit (LC1-2/CP4).

“I can’t quite believe I’ve gone 3:36. That would have got me a top eight place at the Olympics,” said Storey.

Britain’s Rebecca Romero won the Olympic version in 3:28.321, with Katie Mactier qualifying in seventh with 3:38.178.

“It’s something I really hoped for,” said Storey. “The fact that a Paralympian can finish in that sort of time and that sort of position is amazing. I can’t remember much about the race except my legs are hurting.”

Like Cundy, Manchester-based Storey is now firmly in the Paralympic history books after her successful transition from multi-medal success in the pool.
