Paul MacInnes at Fuji International Speedway
- Dame wins C4-5 road race; Crystal Lane-Wright claims silver
- Storey is now 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, Dame 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, followed close behind and chose not to engage in a sprint finish as she claimed a silver medal.
