Both were Olympics medalists two years ago as part of the Women’s Fours but their form as a pair has seen them become a duo.

Romania won the morning race followed by Ireland.  Both will compete in Saturday’s final alongside Chile, Australia, Netherlands and the United States.

Kat­ie O’Brien and Steven McGowan qualified for the Paralympic Games by winning their heat of the PR2 mixed double on Tuesday. They will compete for a medal on Saturday.
