London, U.K. (WHAS11)- A Louisville rower will return home with a medal from the Paralympics in London.

Rower Oksana Masters and boat mate Rob Jones won bronze in mixed double sculls Saturday.

The pair qualified for the Paralympics by winning the world cup in Serbia in May.

They call themselves "Team Bad Company".

Monday we caught up with Randy Mills from the Louisville adaptive rowing program, who has been working with Oksana since she was in the 7th grade.

He says she has worked hard for this win.

“In December they trained in Orlando, Fla. That's what started them on the road to be the top American team,” said Mills.

Mills says when Oksana returns to the U.S. She will begin training for the 2016 Paralympics games in Rio de Janeiro.
