Richael gearing up for final event

Richael Timothy will compete in her final event at the Tokyo Paralympic Games tomorrow (Friday) when she takes part in the Women’s Road Race.

The Ballymoe woman said she “left it all out there” during the Road C1-3 Time Trial on Tuesday morning as she clocked a time of 30:55.24 for a 14th place finish.

The former Roscommon Ladies footballer described the event as the “hardest” she’s ever done.

“I looked down at one point and my heart rate was 200. I went as hard I could,” she told reporters afterwards.

The Irish para-cycling team has enjoyed a successful Games so far with Katie-George Dunlevy and Eve McCrystal taking gold on Tuesday while Gary O’Reilly also took bronze.
