Ireland's Colin Lynch has won the silver medal in the C2 Time Trial Road Race at the Paralympics.
After a strong start, Lynch was second at the half-way mark and he went faster on his second lap to finish in a time of 28:02.25.
Although he improved on the second lap it was not enough to catch Canada's Tristen Chernove who took gold in a time of 27:43.16, while China's Guihua Liang won bronze after crossing the line in 28:17.77.
Having finished fifth at the 2012 Paralympics, Lynch had targeted a medal in Rio and he was delighted to come away with the silver.
"I put all year into this one ride today and I’m pretty pleased. I would have obviously loved to have won the gold and it was obviously close but to come away with a medal, it’s a four year dream," he told RTE Sport.
"At the halfway point I knew that I was only 11 seconds down so I was driving as hard as I could to make that up. The other guy didn’t take too much more time out of me but it was a tough day out there with a lot of wind.
"I gave it everything I had right to the line so there was no more I could have done."
