Congrats for the first Irish first medal in EC!

 

The Magees have good potential, since they can put a good fight to some strong Chinese players by playing it to the 3rd set.

 

Thanks :)

They come from a small town near where I live so it's really great to see them to doing so well.

 

I hope they can qualify for Tokyo!

Who knows, Magees may qualify in 2 events for Tokyo.

Maybe even three if their younger brother Joshua develops his game in men's doubles. Unlikely scenario though :d

 

It's certainly a family affair as their coach is older brother Daniel Magee and another young prospect in the women's game Rachel Darragh is their cousin. All from a small town (and I mean small :d) nearby me, it's a great success story.

Congrats to him and Brazilian fans!

 

On other results, Canadian team took all other four titles (WS, MD, WD and XD), so no real surprise.

Real surprise was Michelle Li losing to another Canadian. Shocking result if you ask me.

I agree with you. Li losing in quarterfinals was probably the biggest surprise,

 

On the other hand, this proves your women's team is getting stronger :yes

Still far out of an Olympic medal. After a fluke 4th in London. Li actually beat silver medalist Sindhu at the Commonwealth Games and if she did that in Rio she may have been the silver medalist.

Li is a good player who is capable of creating an upset or two but do you really think that if she had beaten Sindhu in Rio group stages, she could have defeated Tai Tzu Ying, Wang Yihan and Nozomi Okuhara to win silver medal?
