They took victory in the B road race in Tokyo in a time of 2 hours 35.53 seconds, edging out teams from Great Britain and Sweden by seven seconds.

With 2 golds and a silver for the entire Games, Dunlevy and McCrystal have surpassed their performance in Rio from five years ago.

They won the time trial earlier this week, having earlier landed a silver in the Velodrome.
