Cyclist Jody Cundy says he has ‘unfinished business’ after he was confirmed in Great Britain’s 15-strong squad for this year’s Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Cundy, who hails from Walpole St Andrew, won three gold medals as a swimmer, and will now aim for glory in his third games as a cyclist.

The 37-year-old won two golds in Beijing in 2008 and a bronze in London four years ago.

The 12-time World Track Cycling champion told British Cycling: “It’s a huge honour to be selected for GB Paralympics once again. I’ve got unfinished business from 2012.”
