FWIW :IRL have won 15 Olympic medals in men's boxing and all but 4 of them have been 60kg and lower!

 

 

48kg - 2
51kg - 2
52kg - 1
54kg - 3
56kg - 1
60kg - 2
67kg - 1
67kg - 1
75kg - 1

81kg - 1

 

And here's our team for the European qualifiers

 

 

Men

52kg – Flyweight – Brendan Irvine 

57kg – Featherweight – Kurt Walker 

63kg – Light-welterweight – George Bates 

69kg – Welterweight – Aidan Walsh 

75kg – Middleweight – Michael Nevin 

81kg – Light-heavyweight – Emmett Brennan 

91kg – Heavyweight – Kiril Afanasev 

91+kg – Super-heavyweight – Dean Gardiner 

 

Women

51kg – Flyweight- Ceire Smith 

57kg – Featherweight – Michaela Walsh 

60kg – Lightweight – Kellie Harrington 

69kg – Welterweight – Christina Desmond 

75kg – Middleweight – Aoife O’Rourke 
 

I was thinking that Nevin has been around a long time until I realised I was mixing him up with his cousin John Joe who's more than a decade older and won a silver back in 2012.

Yeah there’s been a few Nevins on the scene

 

With an OK draw I’d expect Nevin and Walker to qualify. Harrington and O’Rourke on the women side

 

others might need a bit of luck

We're also relatively good at lightweight rowing too. Kings of the european little people!

 

meanwhile Carly McNaul has replaced Ceire Smith in the women's 51kg flyweight event

would hope Irvine and Walsh x2 would be close. Think we will ge5 a most 4 men over the two qualifying tournaments but could also get 4 women. We look weak in the men’s heavier weights

Despite the crisis and very strict regulations in the country, a team of Slovak boxers flew to the London qualifying tournament

with

one big dream aka big goal aka big wish aka almost heavens miracle to interrupt the 24 years of droughts.

 

 

Slovakia competed as independent country at the Olympics since Atlanta 1996 and it was also the only time we had boxers (2 males) at Olympics...will we be so lucky to finally qualify someone... ?

 

Depending on the draw, on the judges, on the so needed luck hepfully we finally will..

 

Andrej "Bandi" Csemez in -75kg may be our biggest hope of this sport for the last 24 years...:fingers:
