Homewood resident and cyclist Jennifer Scuble, the subject of The Homewood Star’s July cover story, won silver in the 500-meter indoor and bronze in the mixed team event in the 2012 Paralympic Games in London. She set two American records and was the first female in history to win a Paralympic medal in the mixed team sprint.
Schuble entered the Paralympic cycling scene in 2006 and has since earned an impressive collection of hardware. At the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing she won a gold medal and two silver medals.

Before Beijing she grabbed a gold and two bronze medals at the U.S. Paralympics National Road Cycling Championships and then went on to win two gold medals and one silver medal at the UCI Paracycling World Championships.
