Superb Katie George Dunlevy and Eve McCrystal storm to time trial gold
The Irish tandem pair put in a stunning display beneath Mount Fuji.

KATIE GEORGE DUNLEVY and Eve McCrystal put in a brilliant performance to claim gold in the women’s B time trial at the Fuji International Speedway in Tokyo this morning. 

The tandem duo posted a time of 47:32:07 to come home ahead of the British team, of Laura Fachie and Corrine Hall in second. 

Dunlevy and McCrystal claimed silver earlier in the Games in the B 3000m individual pursuit and were hugely impressive in this morning’s time trial.

“It means the world to me, working for five years towards this,” said Dunlevy. ” We wanted to come here and retain the title but really wanted to get the best out of ourselves and have a good ride and hope that would give us a medal and then a gold medal.

“We heard on first lap that we were up and we were just moving the bike together. That was the ride of our lives to get that – we were just moving as one. I felt before, warming up, had a feeling warming up that I was going to fight for the win and we did it.”

She went on to say: “Just for kids or adults at home with a visual impairment that our success today shows that you can do anything you want to do. There is nothing you can’t do. This might inspire them and I know it gives pride to the people at home and just up lift people after two of the pandemic.”
