"This is everything. I&#8217;ve been working on this in training so hard. I&#8217;m so chuffed."
"To be even on the same page as Tanni, to have won 11 is just a dream come true, I don&#8217;t know if it will ever sink in."
Sarah Storey OBE really has been one of the stars of Team Paralympic GB at London 2012, striking gold in all of her four events on both the track and the road. On the track, she won both the individual pursuit and 500m time trial, while on the road she won in the individual road race and the time trial, all in the C5 category. Storey was born without a functional left-hand, after her arm became entangled with the umbilical cord in the womb. At 34, this has been Sarah&#8217;s sixth Paralympic games, and before being a successful cyclist, she won 5 gold, 8 silver and 3 bronze swimming medals over four Paralympic games. Since the start of her sporting career, Sarah has accumulated a total of 11 Paralympic golds, making her Britain&#8217;s most decorated female Paralympian of all time, but isn&#8217;t finished yet - she is carrying on and going for gold in Rio 2016!

The Olympic stadium full for one of the Paralympic athletic sessions

This is the sort of enthusiasm we need for all disability sport.

"It&#8217;s my first Games, so I had no idea what to expect. It doesn&#8217;t get better than this - a sold-out Olympic stadium. Just unreal."

18-year-old Raymond Martin won gold in all four of his events in his Paralympic debut at London 2012. The American triumphed in the 100, 200, 400 and 800 meter T52 Wheelchair races, a category for athletes with limited or no trunk and upper back function and no leg function. Martin, from Jersey City, N.J., was born with a disorder known as arthrogyposis that affects joint flexibility from his ankles to his neck. Raymond went into the competition fairly new to the professional athletics scene, and almost twenty years younger than the other athletes in his category, but blew his experienced competitors out of the London 2012 athletics stadium with awesome style.
