Katie-George Dunlevy has been confirmed as Team Ireland’s flag bearer for the closing ceremony of the Tokyo Paralympics.

Dunlevy will be joined by Eve McCrystal, following a stunning Games which saw the duo win two golds and a silver medal.

Their silver came in the velodrome, as they finished second in the Women’s B 3000m individual pursuit.

There would be better to come on the road as they took gold in the time trial and then the road race - the latter coming in the pouring rain on Friday.

Dunlevy and McCrystal were responsible for three of the seven medals won by Team Ireland in Japan.

The closing ceremony gets underway at 12pm on Sunday, bringing the curtain down the summer Games in Tokyo.
