Day 13

August 9, 2012

Athletics: Deirdre Ryan is eliminated from the high jump after a third failure at 1.90m

She successfully jumped 1.80 and 1.85, but missed three attempts at the next mark to miss out.

Boxing: Another comprehensive victory for Katie Taylor yesterday – this time on a 17-9 scoreline against Mvzuna Chorieva – saw the Irish fighter through to the lightweight final.

Although now guaranteed at least a silver medal, the four-time world champion from Bray will only have eyes for gold and will be favourite going into this bout.

Taylor will face Russia’s Sofya Ochigava in the final. Ochigava had a comfortable 17-11 victory over Brazil’s Adriana Arujo in the semi finals.

Katie Taylor fights in the lightweight final at 1645.
