London 2012 Day 2

July 28, 2012

Team Ireland programme for day 2:


Swimming: Sycerika McMahon, silver medallist at the European Championships over 50m, will be making her Olympic debut. With the slowest qualifying time in Heat 4.  The Portaferry teenager looking  to advance to Sunday evening’s semi-finals (starting at 7.30pm).


Equestrian: The final two members of the eventing team, Camilla Speirs and Mark Kyle, will be judged on the second day of the dressage competition. Speirs at 11.52am with Kyle due at 3.10pm.


Sailing: Peter O’Leary and David Burrows  won gold in a pre-Olympic regatta last month. The Dublin-based duo take to the water for the first of at least 10 races in the Star class at 1.35pm, with the second taking place at 2.50pm.


Canoeing: Eoin Rheinisch, who missed out on a medal by the narrowest of margins in Beijing, goes in the heats of the K1 Slalom on Sunday lunchtime. The 32-year-old has not had the ideal preparation with injuries taking their toll but should certainly hope to advance to Wednesday’s semi-finals.

7.10 pm

Badminton: World number 44 Chloe Magee opens her Olympic campaign in the round robin format against Pi Hongyan of France, a former world number two.  Magee will get another contest when she meets Egypt’s Hadia Hosny on Tuesday.


Boxing: Adam Nolan is on the night shift at the Excel Arena, around 10pm when he will meet Ecuador’s Carlos Sanchez Estacio.
