President of Ireland praises boxers

August 19, 2008

“The athletes will be keeping their feet on the ground and concentrating on progressing further; Darren Sutherland is still to compete in his quarter final tomorrow, so there is quiet satisfaction in the Olympic Village, but certainly no histeria”

He went on “credit must go first and foremost to the boxers on their medal success, and paid tribute to their Olympic Team coaches Billy Walsh, Zaur Antia ,Team Manager Jim Walsh, and support staff.

It’s been a good moral boost for athletes still to compete in race walking and mountain biking”
