Australia’s Paige Greco claims first cycling gold medal of Tokyo Paralympic Games



Australia’s Paige Greco claimed the first cycling gold medal of the Tokyo Paralympic Games, winning gold in the women’s C3 Individual Pursuit, over China’s Wang Xiaomei, with a new world record.

The 24 year old South Australian launched into the top level of the sport at the 2019 UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in the Netherlands by setting three world records in two days. One of those was the C3 Individual Pursuit record, which was 4:00.206. However the reigning world champion in the event beat that time twice on Wednesday, once in qualifying and then in the gold medal final when she set a new mark of 3:50.815.
