Sarah Storey clinched her 17th Paralympic gold on Thursday to become Great Britain’s most successful Paralympian of all time.

The 43-year-old out-rode the competition in the women’s C4-5 road race, putting her one gold ahead of previous record holder Mike Kenny.

“I’m a bit overwhelmed, I feel like it’s happening to someone else,” said the swimmer-turned-cyclist, who punched the air in celebration as she made it past the finish line.

“I can’t really explain or compute anything about the race, but crossing the line first felt so good.”

The athlete now has 28 Paralympic medals in total and has not won anything except gold since making her cycling Paralympic debut at Beijing 2008.
