Jody Cundy has sent out a message to his Paralympic opponents by experiencing success for the eighth time at the Para-Cycling Track World Championships today.
Cundy sped to an eighth gold medal in the C4 1km time trial with a time of 1:04:654.
The former swimmer, who is now based in Manchester, eased to victory despite not competing in his signature kilo race for the past year.
“It’s the first kilo I’ve done in 12 months,” he told BT Sport before the race.
“That’s going to be an interesting prospect. Everything at the moment is saying it’s going to be a pretty good kilo. Fingers crossed it will all come together.”
