Podkoscielna is one of the world’s best road tandem riders who finished top of the world rankings in 2015 after enjoying great success.

The highlight of a busy year for the Polish rider was double gold at the UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships in Nottwil, Switzerland. Together with pilot Aleksandra Wnuczek, she claimed rainbow jerseys in the time trial and road race events, adding to her three World Cup wins from earlier in the year.

Podkoscielna and Wnuczek have been riding together since 2010 and first enjoyed success in 2013 when they won the UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships road race.

On the track, Podkoscielna secured top six finishes in all three events she took part in at the 2015 UCIPara-cycling Track World Championships in the Netherlands.

Rio 2016 will be her first Paralympic Games.
