- Dame wins C4-5 road race; Crystal Lane-Wright claims silver
- Storey stands out on her own as GB’s most successful Paralympian
- Great Britain also claim one-two in men’s C1-3 road race
In diabolical conditions on the foothills of Mount Fuji, Sarah Storey completed a journey she began 29 years ago as she won her 17th gold medal to become, outright, the most successful British Paralympian of all time.
As rain lashed down and waves of fog rolled across the extended speedway circuit, the 43-year-old Storey crossed the line first in the women’s C4-5 road race in a time of 2:21.51. Her ParalympicsGB teammate, Crystal Lane-Wright claimed silver after the pair saw off the breakaway challenge of the German Kersten Brachtendorf.
