Southeastern is naming one of Britain’s high speed Javelin trains in honour of Dame Sarah Storey, 22 time Paralympic medallist.
The Javelin fleet carried over 2.4 million spectators to and from the Olympic Park over the period and was integral to the success of the Games. Dame Storey took home four gold medals for cycling at the Games, which takes her tally for both swimming and cycling to 22 medals.
She was recently appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 2013 New Year Honours list. 11 Javelin trains are already named after some of Britain’s greatest sporting champions and this year Southeastern will be adding another 12 Olympians and Paralympians to the fleet.
