CYCLIST Jody Cundy smashed three seconds off his world record to win gold in the LC2 1km time trail at the Paralympic Games this morning (Tuesday).
Cundy, from Walpole St Andrew, set a time of 1:05.466 in Beijing to take his fourth career gold medal.
The 29-year-old won his previous three gold medals in swimming, in the 100m butterfly in Atlanta 1996 and Sydney 2000.
Moments after Cundy won gold this morning, his uncle David said: "Jody's father Alan called me from China after he won - and his words to me were that Jody annihilated the field.
