Sawtrys Steadman and Papworth-based Cunningham hwill do battle in the PT 4 category of the debut-making paratriathlon event. Steadmans selection was inevitable as the reigning British, European and world champion and the 23-year-old will start as hot favourite for glory, while Cunningham, herself a former world champion, could challenge for a medal. Steadman, who has appeared in the last two Paralympics as a swimmer, said recently: I know the position Im in as world and European champion. Im more than capable of bringing home the gold so thats the aim. Cunningham, 39, returns to the Paralympics stage an incredible 20 years after her last appearance. She competed as a swimmer in Barcelona (1992) and Atlanta (1996). Cunningham said: Its all really exciting, I cant wait to get out there and finish the job off. Training has been going very well so Im in a really good position to give it my best shot.
