Have your say

AILEEN McGlynn relinquished her Paralympic tandem one-kilometre time-trial title and had to settle for silver alongside pilot Helen Scott at the London 2012 velodrome.

McGlynn, who is partially sighted, and Scott clocked one minute 9.469 seconds to finish 0.550secs behind Australia’s Felicity Johnson and Stephanie Morton, who stole victory in a Paralympic record of 1min 8.919secs.

It is the first time McGlynn has tasted Paralympic defeat in the event after winning gold in Athens and Beijing with Ellen Hunter as pilot.
