Paralympics veteran Jody Cundy has been selected to compete for Team GB in Rio in September making it six Games on the trot.

Former University of Hertfordshire student Cundy, competed at Atlanta 1996, Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004 as a swimmer before turning his attentions to cycling for Beijing 2008 and London 2012.

The 37-year-old famously lost his cool at the Velodrome in London 2012 after being disqualified from the 1km time trial event for stumbling out of the starters blocks.

Cundy said: “It’s a huge honour to be selected for Paralympics GB once again. I’ve got unfinished business from London 2012 and I’ll be giving everything I’ve got over the next couple of months to make sure I’m in the best possible shape when I get to the start line.”

Veteran Cundy won three gold medals in the pool in his first three Paralympics before claiming two golds at Beijing and a bronze in the 4km pursuit (C4) at London 2012.
