Badminton

IRISH No 1 Scott Evans broke into the top 25 in the world for the first time in his career last week after winning the Brazil Grand Prix and reaching the finals of the Bitburger Open Grand Prix gold event in Germany.

Most recently he made the last 16 at the All England Open Championships - his best performance so far of a promising career and is now ranked at No 26.

In the mixed doubles, Chloe Magee and Sam Magee are ranked No 24 , which augurs well for their Rio 2016 campaign.
