Sam and Chloe Magee have guaranteed Ireland a bronze medal at the 2019 European Games in Minsk...

 

 

 

 

 

Sam and Chloe beat Robin Tabeling and Selena Piek of Netherlands 21-19 21-17 to progress into their second European Games semi-final. The Irish pair will face the number one seeds and previous European Games gold medallists Chris and Gabrielle Adcock of England. 

"We really wanted a medal this week, but we’ve had such a tough draw and now standing here knowing we’re going home with a medal is the most incredible feeling that you could imagine". - Chloe Magee.

''There's no pressure. They're the top seeds, they're a world-class pair and they're expected to win. We have to use the other side of the coin by coming in with no pressure and try and deliver the same quality of performance that we did today'' - Sam Magee.
