Magees from Raphoe are guaranteed at least bronze medals at European Games in Minsk

Chloe and Sam Magee . . . guaranteed bronze medals

Chloe and Sam Magee are guaranteed at least bronze medals in the Badminton Mixed Doubles at the European Games in Minsk after winning their quarter-final this morning.
They have just defeated Netherlands pair Robin Tabeling and Selena Piek. They won the game two sets to nil, 21-19, 21-17.
The Donegal duo recorded a comprehensive win against the Belarus pair of Aliaksei Konakh and Krestina Silich 21-9, 21-5 on Thursday morning, but had a nervous wait for the final group game between France and Russia to conclude before their place in the quarter final was confirmed.
They now have a semi-final to look forward to. A fantastic achievement for the Raphoe siblings.
