Storey, 38, became Britain's most decorated female Paralympian on Thursday after winning gold in the C5 3,000m individual pursuit in the velodrome.

The win edged her ahead of 11-time gold medalist Tanni Grey-Thompson and today's gold edges her ever-closer to Britain's most-decorated Paralympian of all time: swimmer Mike Kenny, who has 16 gold medals.

Storey, originally from Eccles in Yorkshire, has won a total of 24 Paralympic medals across two sports and an impressive seven Paralympic Games.

Storey began her career as a swimmer but was forced to abandon the pool after suffering persistent ear infections after the 2004 Athens Games.

She returned as a cyclist at the 2008 and 2012 Games to win another six gold medals to add to her five for swimming, and has had considerable success outside the Paralympics including in able-bodied national competitions.
