Magees to get medal for sure

Josh (pictured) and Sam Magee guaranteed themselves at least a bronze medal in the men's doubles badminton competition with a 23-21, 19-21, 51-15 win over Belgian's Dierickx and Golinski. They now face a Russian pair in the semi-finals today.

Scott Evans beat Bulgaria's Blagovest Kisyov 21-6, 21-13 to set up with a quarter-final date with Denmark's Emil Holst.

Chloe Magee and Sam Magee completed their mixed double group stage unbeaten after a compressive 21-3, 21-2 victory over Maltese opponents.

The women's 3x3 basketball team caused a shock by beating the Czech Republic and they pushed Russia all the way in the quarter-finals before going down 21-15 after a late push from the tournament's top seeds.

The 4x100 medley relay team of Danielle Hill, Mona McSharry, Emma Reid and Rachel Bethel finished sixth in their final, setting a new Irish junior record of 4:16.81. Reid was just .37 of a second off the last qualifying place in her 100m butterfly semi-final but did set a new Irish junior record of 1:01.97.

Rachel Bethel posted 2:04.89 in the women's freestyle final. Andrew Moore, Rory McEvoy, Katie Baguley, Isuelt Hayes all missed out on the semi-finals of their competitions.
