Fisher claimed the first gold medal of the day for the red, white and blue, taking the top prize in women’s individual C4 time trial over Australia’s Susan Powell. Fisher, a silver medalist in the women’s individual C4 pursuit in track cycling, finished in a time of 26:04.39 while Powell came in 26 seconds later.
“I’m feeling smashed,” Fisher said. “It was a really strong field, I’ve been going back and forth with Susan for a couple of years now. Everyone’s become so talented and worked so hard in the off season to prepare themselves for these races. It’s just such an honor to be here and compete against them. I applaud everyone’s efforts.”
