Silver medal for Paralympic star cyclist from Lewisham
LEWISHAM’s cycling star Shaun McKeown scored silver in the C3 men’s individual pursuit at the Velodrome on Friday.
The cerebral palsy sufferer, who lives in Lee, claimed the medal after clocking 3.38.637 on the track - narrowly missing out on gold to American amputee Joe Berenyi.
The 32-year-old was inspired by the cycling success at the Beijing Paralympics and was talent-spotted at a British Paralympic Association event in 2009.
McKeown was previously a database developer and would like to work within sports science after his athletic career.
