Five times Paralympic gold medallists Jody Cundy has been selected as part of an 18-strong Para-Cycling team announced today by the British Paralympic Association (BPA) as competing at London 2012.
The team who will feature Paralympic multi gold medallists Sarah Storey, Darren Kenny and Aileen McGlynn and Beijing gold medallists David Stone and Rachel Morris is also bolstered by new talent including 2012 World Championships gold medallist Mark Colbourne and 2011 World Road and 2012 World Track Championships bronze medallist Shaun McKeown.
Speaking today, Jody said: “I feel honoured to be selected for my fifth Paralympics which ultimately is going to be the most important and special as it is on home soil. I can’t wait to defend my Paralympic titles and race in front of a partisan crowd as part of the strongest team that ParalympicsGB has ever sent to a Paralympic Games. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported me along the way and I look forward to your continued support. Bring on London!”
The Para-Cycling team brought home 20 medals from Beijing to finish top of their sport’s medal table, and the sport has brought home multiple international medals from road and track since 2008, so Paralympic selectors are confident that the team will perform once again when they take to the boards at the Olympic Park is just over 60 days’ time.
