Jody Cundy set a new world record in the C4 kilo at the para-cycling track world championships in Mexico.
The Wisbech athlete took almost four seconds off his 2011 world championship record to beat stiff competition from Slovakia and China.
It was a momentous moment for the Fen man, now 35, after the bitter disappointment of the 2012 London Olympics.
He told BBC Sport: “The last major championships I had in this event was the 20 metres I did in London, so to be crowned world champion now and break the world record feels pretty amazing.
“I’ve won a lot of titles over the years. It’s always good to get the gold medal and the rainbow jersey - that’s the most important thing.
“World records can be broken, but it’s nice to put one out there that should hopefully stand for quite a few years.”
