Latest news

    Storey is set to compete in three events in Brazil

    The 14-time Paralympic champion Sarah Storey will return to the Great Britain team for next month’s Para-Cycling Track World Championships in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

    Storey has been named in a 22-strong squad for the event from 22-25 March.

    The 40-year-old gave birth to her second child in October and missed the 2017 season.

    She became Britain’s most decorated female Paralympian at Rio 2016, where she added three golds to her tally.

    The Worlds team also features Storey’s fellow Rio gold medallists Jody Cundy, Sophie Thornhill, Helen Scott, Lora Fachie, Corrine Hall, Megan Giglia, Steve Bate, Adam Duggleby, Louis Rolfe and Jon-Allan Butterworth.

    There are also places for newcomers Katie Toft and Blaine Hunt.

    However, Rio cycling and athletics dual star Kadeena Cox will not be taking part because of athletics and university commitments.

    Cox will be representing England in the Para-sport athletics events in April’s Commonwealth Games in Australia.
