These ladies have absolutely smashed it over the last week.

Unless you’re living under a rock you’ll have heard a ton about the Irish paralympics athletes Katie-George Dunlevy and Eve McCrystal in recent days. The pair won a silver medal last weekend, and then a gold on Tuesday. Today they add another gold medal to their arsenal, a huge accomplishment for the duo.

The pair took their gold on the Fuji International Speedway in the B Road Race, finishing with an impressive time of 2.35.35 according to The 42. They secured gold while Britain’s Sophie Unwin and Jenny Holl took silver and Sweden’s Louise Jannering and Anna Svaerdstroem took bronze.

Dunlevy told RTÉ News that, “The road race is my favourite and I’ve always wanted to win that at the Paralympics.” That only makes this victory even sweeter for the two and for Team Ireland.
