100 Team GB contenders for London 2012: Sarah Storey
Cycling (team pursuit)
Sarah Storey targets an Olympic/Paralympic double
Storey is aiming to become the first Briton to compete at both the Olympics and Paralympics.
She made her name as a swimmer, winning two gold medals as a 14-year-old at the 1992 Paralympics. Altogether, she won five Paralympic titles before switching to cycling (initially because she kept suffering ear infections) in 2005 - she then won two more golds at the 2008 Paralympics.

“You work all the time to be the best, and when you end up being the best in the world, it's just amazing. Every time is just like the first”
Her winning individual pursuit time in the 2008 Paralympics would have qualified her in seventh place in the women's Olympic event.
The Mancunian was born without a left hand (her arm ends at the heel of her palm).
Her husband Barney is a sighted rider for blind or partially sighted athletes - he won two golds in that role at the 2008 Paralympics.
