We all felt incredibly lucky and privileged to have Laois’ very own Olympic Bronze Medalist Gary O’Reilly visit us here at Midland Steel this week.

IN SWELTERING heat and drenching humidity Gary O’Reilly secured a bronze medal for Ireland in the men’s H5 time trial at the Fuji International Speedway.   

The Portlaoise hand-cyclist set 39:36.46 to take third place in a hard fought event around the famous motor racing circuit in the rolling foothills below Mount Fuji.  

Midland Steel is proud to have supported and sponsored Gary on his journey this year and we wish him continued success.   

An unbelievable result, a true champion, and a true gentleman.  
Well done Gary !!
