Sarah Storey and her fellow Paralympians reflected on the success of the London 2012 Games on Sunday.
The swimmer-turned-cyclist bagged four gold medals at the Games and said that the impact of London 2012 has seen paralympic sports enter the mainstream.
"The way Paralympic sport has changed, the way it's been embraced by a wider public. People are now starting to look and say 'look this is just elite sport, we don't need to start talking about disability, impairment levels or anything like that.'
"We've watched sports from, you know, wheelchair rugby, wheelchair basketball all the way through to cycling, via the athletics stadium, the swimming pool and we've just seen elite sport. World record after world record."
The 34-year-old claimed her fourth gold of London 2012 on Thursday, winning the C4-5 road race gold at Brands Hatch following victories in the 500 metre time-trial and 3km individual pursuit gold in the velodrome and road time-trial gold.
