Dundalk paracycling world champion McCrystal, and Dunlevy, awarded Sports Woman of the Month award for August

Eve McCrystal and Katie George Dunlevy.

World champions, Dundalk's Eve McCrystal and paracycling partner Katie-George Dunlevy have been named as The Irish Times Sport Ireland Sportswoman of the Year Monthly Award winners for August. 

McCrystal and Dunlevy receive the award just as they did in August of last year, after they successfully defended both their titles at the UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships in Italy.

In the Time Trial, the pair received word that they were 10 seconds down at one point. Ten minutes after the race concluded they were informed that not only had they won, they had done so by almost 20 seconds.

Two days later they retained their Road Race title, further extending their remarkable record of success in their sport.
