Katie George Dunlevy has described her gold medal win at the Rio Paralympics as the happiest day of her life.

She and Eve McCrystal won gold together in the women's B Road Time Trial and afterwards they shared their thoughts with Newstalk Sports' Oisin Langan.

"There's a lot of emotions going through my head but I'm absolutely delighted. It's the happiest day of my life so far," said Dunlevy.

"It's been a long road - four years hard training and ups and downs. I'm delighted to have got the medal."  

McCrystal added: "As Katie said, it has been hard. It's always that bit harder when there's two of you. But then, we always had one goal in mind. From the start, we said we were going for a gold medal."
