Dame Sarah Storey DBE wins 15th Paralympic gold medal
Sarah won gold in the C5 3000m individual pursuit at the Games, breaking the world record by more than four seconds to win her 15th Paralympic title.
She beat teammate Crystal Lane-Wright in the final to claim Team GB’s first gold medal of the Tokyo Games.
In an interview with the BBC, Sarah said: "It's quite overwhelming.
"I don't know if it will sink in until I get home. I came here with a really solid plan of what I wanted to do and I've delivered it, so it kind of blows your mind a bit.
"I talked before about breaking your personal best, in my case a world record, a small margin at a time. And I just knocked 4.3 seconds off.
"I've done so much training, and everyone's been reminding me how much work I've done and how I deserve to be that fast, but you don't like to presume. So, it took me by surprise, but a good surprise.
"I think about one race at a time and maybe I'll think about these things afterwards. But it does feel pretty surreal."
The former Leeds Beckett University Sport & Exercise Science student has won gold in all eight Paralympic Games she has competed in, and is now just one gold medal away from equalling swimmer Mike Kenny’s British gold medal record of 16.
Sarah has two more events left to compete in at Tokyo 2020 and could become Britain’s greatest ever Paralympian if she secures gold in one of the two upcoming events on Tuesday 31 August - the road time trial and road race.
