Burnett fell to his knees at the end of the final round realising he had just made history for Ireland at the World Youth Olympic Games. Irish team coaches Jim Moore and Jimmy Payne were delighted with the result, especially after the unfortunate elimination of Joe Ward yesterday, mainly due to injury.

Burnett said, “Im so proud to be Irelands first ever Youth Olympic Medallist and now look forward to the final, ive trained hard for this “and thanked coaches Jim Moore and Jimmy Payne
