Eve is mother to two young daughters; she put her career in An Garda Siochana on hold, stalled her social life, and dedicated herself entirely to cycling over the past couple of years.

Katie-George is based in Crawley, West Sussex and has a background in rowing. She was diagnosed with a genetic, progressive eye condition RP (Retinitis Pigmentosa) at the age of 11 but hasn’t let that stop her achieving. Katie-George represents Ireland, as her father is a native from Mountcharles, in Donegal.

The pair have been dominant in tandem Para Cycling with their greatest success coming at the Tokyo Paralympic Games as the pair claimed Paralympic medals in both the Individual Pursuit (Gold), Road Race (Gold) and the 1000 Track Event (Silver).

In the Rio Paralympics Games in 2016, they were Gold and Silver medallists in the Time Trial B Event and the Road Race Respectively.

Long road to gold glory for Paralympic cyclist Eve McCrystal
Irish gold medallist Eve McCrystal had sacrificed a lot by the time she and Paralympic cycling partner Katie-George Dunlevy zipped past the finish line in Tokyo just before 7am Irish time on Tuesday. She had put her career in An Garda Síochána on hold, stalled her social life, dedicated herself entirely to riding. On the day of Paralympic glory, her brother Bryan noted, her two young daughters were returning to school 9,500km away from the podium. “I’m delighted they got the gold medal after all the hard work they put in to get there,” he said. “It’s the target they set themselves… reaching it is so fulfilling.”
