#Paralympics2016 #Rio2016

British Para-triathlete Lauren Steadman competed at the two old Paralympics as a swimmer. She says she can deal with the power of being a gold medal winner in Rio at her third Paralympics. The 23-year-ancient accomplished medals as a swimmer at Beijing 2008 and London 2012, and is undefeated for more than two years after switching sports.

She will attempt to emulate Andy Lewis, who won the men's event on Saturday.
"There's pressure, however I'm a much better, greater skilled athlete now," she told.

Steadman was born without an appropriate forearm will compete in the #Triathlon. After switching activities in 2013, she won world titles in 2014 and 2015.

"I'm feeling very strong in the intervening time. I've no longer had any injuries and fortunately am all back to ordinary after my bike crash," she noted.

"It become a extremely technical path, with one hundred thirty extra turns than we'll have in Rio and i was just coming into probably the most corners after I went over a cobble so complicated that my prosthesis became knocked off the handlebars with such force I got here off.

Head coach Jonathan Riall believes Steadman has eventually 'discovered her recreation' after two Paralympic cycles as a swimmer. "I don't are expecting her to be overawed, but she is capable she's certainly not been in before - as one of the favored athletes," he told a popular sports channel.

Having already claimed European and World titles, gold in Rio would finished a career 'grand slam' of Honours.
