Portlaoise's Gary O'Reilly has taken Bronze in the Cycling H5 Time Trial at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
On a time of 39:36.46 he took third place in a gruelling competition in intense heat around the motor racing circuit below Mount Fuji.
It was Ireland's fifth medal and comes shortly after Nicole Turner's Silver on Monday.
''I'm completely shocked to be honest – didn’t expect to get the medal. I’m just absolutely delighted" he said afterwards.
"I am so happy to have done it for everyone at home - I did for them.''
Never in a million years did Nicole Turner expect to be wearing a Paralympic medal but now she is. Watch who the remarkable young Portarlington girl reacted to her silver.
