Anne-Marie McDaid rows in the bow seat for the LTA mixed coxed four.
As a product of the Paralions talent identification programme, McDaid has played a key role in the crew’s success since her arrival in 2009.
The team secured fifth place in the 2010 World Championships in New Zealand.
Their fifth-place finish at Slovenia’s 2011 World Rowing Championships means that they will become the first Irish boat to compete at a Paralympic Games.
