Tokyo twice: A gold medal in wheelchair what?

Caz Walton was just 17 when she competed at the 1964 Paralympic Games in Tokyo and won gold for Great Britain.

From the wheelchair slalom to organiser of athletes, Paralympic legend Caz Walkon has had quite the sports career.

After a memorable opening ceremony in Japan with Crown Prince Akihito, Caz went on to win several gold medals, notably in the wheelchair dash and wheelchair slalom - two sports that no longer appear in the Games.

Over the next four decades she won 10 gold medals ... and a mysterious 11th has just come to light...

Now aged 74, Caz still works for ParaGB and is out in Tokyo supporting this year's team.
