WILTSHIRE’S Lauren Booth claimed a superb haul of six gold medals when she travelled to Brisbane to represent Great Britain at the INAS Global Games.

The Global Games are the world’s biggest sports event for athletes with an intellectual impairment.

More than 1,000 athletes from all around the world gather every four years to compete in 10 different sports.

Chippenham’s Booth contested six cycling events Down Under – and came away with a gold medal in each of them to be crowned a sensational six-time world champion.

The teenager finished on the top step of the podium in the women’s team time trial, the women’s road race, the women’s individual time trial, the women’s 500m time trial, the women’s sprint and the women’s 2k individual pursuit.

Booth’s mother, Lisajayne, said: “Having gone to Australia hoping to get on the podium, Lauren was over the moon to be on the top step in each event, taking the gold medal and becoming world champion.

”Unfortunately, there is no funding for these events and Lauren was fortunate to have had support from members of the public and local businesses.”

Booth is now hoping to compete at the European and World Championships in Portugal in 2020 where she will aim to retain her titles.
