Last Friday evening, Jody Cundy was pulling on his 14th consecutive rainbow jersey as world champion in the C4 Kilo Time Trial. Later this year, the eight-time Paralympic gold medallist will be pulling on a sequinned jersey as one of the contestants on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.
The man with 21 gold medals on the track at the World Championships will be taking part in the samba rather than the sprint in the reality TV series. He was born with a deformed right foot which saw his lower right leg being amputated at the age of three, and follows in the tracks of fellow Paralympians Ellie Simmonds, Jonnie Peacock and Will Bayley in taking to the small screen to dance.
