The North West’s Dame Sarah Storey has won Great Britain’s first gold medal this week in Tokyo at the 2020 Paralympic Games. Her 15th Gold medal and counting.
Her latest record-breaking feat enhances, still further, her status as one of Britain’s greatest ever sporting icons – she excelled at rowing before switching sports and becoming even more dominant. But she’s also the mother of two young children and, in more recent times, become South Yorkshire’s active travel commissioner.
The South Yorkshire Region can count itself fortunate to have the services of such an inspirational ambassador and role model who leads by example in all that she does and who is already making a difference in her day job as she promotes walking, cycling and her love of the great outdoors to people of all ages and abilities.
Congratulations to Sarah, we wish you good luck in your other events coming up in Tokyo.
