FIVE-times Paralympic gold medallist Jody Cundy is among an 18-strong Para-Cycling team announced today (Tuesday) by the British Paralympic Association for London 2012.

Cundy, from Walpole St Andrew, said: “I feel honoured to be selected for my fifth Paralympics which ultimately is going to be the most important and special as it is on home soil.

“I can’t wait to defend my Paralympic titles and race in front of a partisan crowd as part of the strongest team that ParalympicsGB has ever sent to a Paralympic Games.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported me along the way and I look forward to your continued support. Bring on London!”

The Para-Cycling team brought home 20 medals from Beijing to finish top of their sport’s medal table, and the sport has brought home multiple international medals from road and track since 2008, so Paralympic selectors are confident that the team will perform once again when they take to the boards at the Olympic Park is just over 60 days’ time.
