“Crystal Lane-Wright, an out British cyclist, wins Team LGBTQ’s first Paralympic medal.”

Crystal Lane-Wright of the United Kingdom is off to a strong start at the Paralympics. At the Izu Velodrome, the cyclist won silver in the Women’s C5 3000m Pursuit, setting a new personal best time.

Dame Sarah Storey, a fellow Brit and Paralympic powerhouse, narrowly defeated her by nearly 4 seconds with a blazing 3-minute, 27.057-second run to break her own world mark.

Lane-Wright became a top rider in part thanks to Storey, the most successful British female Paralympian of all time. She arrived in Tokyo with 14 gold medals, dating back to 1992 in Barcelona.

During a 2009 British Cycling talent search event, Storey noticed Lane-Wright and took her under her wing. By 2010, Lane-Wright was competing for the Great Britain Cycling Team and qualified for her first Paralympics on home soil in London in 2012.

The final race was a rematch of 2016 final in Rio. Storey caught and passed Lane-Wright at the 1,750-meter mark to win her 15th Paralympic gold.

But Lane-Wright was not disappointed in winning silver. She saw her opening result as a confidence boost for next week’s road events, and competitions beyond these Paralympics.

“I don’t think I’ve reached my full potential. I think I can keep getting better,” she told the BBC after the event. “As much as I’m up against Sarah, it’s me against me. I can only control what I can do. To get such a good PB this morning, I’m so pleased.”
