Paralympian Sarah Storey could equal Tanni Grey Thompson and Dave Roberts' British records of 11 Paralympic gold medals should she be victorious in the Women's Road Race at Brands Hatch later today.
Storey claimed her third gold medal of the current games yesterday with a dominant performance in the Women's Individual Time Trial, and competes at 14.32 today (Thursday).
Speaking yesterday Storey said: "Just to be anywhere near Tanni is amazing and I can't believe I've been put on the same page as her. She's a good friend, a great athlete and I hope to get to see her at some point before the games end.
"Whether or not it goes my way, with a road race you can never tell. The girls will all be gunning to beat me after this week so I'll have to keep my wits about me and see what happens!"
Also in action today for ParalympicsGB include Jon-Allan Butterworth (C5/C4) who competes at 10.30 with Shaun McKeown and Mark Colbourne (C3-1) who race at 14.30.
