Storey becomes Britain's most decorated female Paralympian

5:32 am on 7 September 2012

Sarah Storey won the women's road race to claim her 11th gold medal and become Britain's most successful female Paralympian.

The 34-year-old, who began her career as a swimmer winning five gold medals at the 1992 and 1996 Games, added the road race title to the road time trial, the 500m time trial and the individual pursuit golds she won earlier in London.

She equals former wheelchair racer Britain's Tanni Grey-Thompson's haul of 11 golds, but becomes Britain's most decorated female with 22 medals overall.

She won the road race by a huge margin, with her nearest rival Anna Harkowska finishing more than seven minutes behind.
