TRAFFORD Paralympic cyclist Jon Gildea is celebrating winning two world championship gold medals and a silver over the weekend.
Jon, aged 38, won an individual pursuit on Saturday - and then followed that up by being crowned C4-5 scratch world champion on Sunday, at the UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in Los Angeles.
Jon won his first world title with a stunning performance in the C5 individual pursuit.
This followed a 1km time trial silver medal the previous day.
In the individual pursuit, he beat his opponent, Brazil’s Lauro Cesar Chaman, by more than two seconds in the final.
The following day, he was crowned C4-5 scratch world champion after a drama-packed race.
Four riders were together for the final sprint and Jon crossed the line third.
It was quickly established that the second placed rider had been lapped, pushing Jon from bronze to silver, before late drama which saw the Brazilian rider who had crossed the line relegated for an infringement.
That meant Jon won his second world title of the week.
He said: "It's fantastic. It will probably take a little while to settle in. The plans have come together, it's nice when a plan comes together."
