Thompson, Johnson, Jenkins and O’Donnell Fight for European Medals on Thursday

Team Ireland could double their European Youth medal tally if things go their way in Croatia on Thursday.

Ireland have banked four medals thanks to quarter-final wins for Ava Henry, Kyla Doyle, Grace Conway and Joshua Olaniyan.

A full house of wins on a busy Thursday would see them add four more and thus equal the record haul of the class of 2022.

Scott Thompson, Jack Johnson, Ryan Jenkins and Tadgh O’Donnell all contest for podium places.

Spartan 48kg Thompson meets Azerbaijan’s Nazarov Bilalhabasi in bout 4 of Ring A’s Afternoon Session. In Bout 8 of the same ring and session, lightweight Jonhson boxes Djemmal Mohamed Ali Djamel of France.

In Bout 8 of Ring B’s Afternoon Session, 63.5kg Jenkins of Portlaoise BC meets Greece’s Emmanouil Fotiadis, while in Bout 6 of Ring B’s Evening Session, 71kg O’Donnell steps between the ropes to contest against Armenia’s Marat Mikaelyan.

The Afternoon Session begins at 1pm, Irish time, and the Evening Session is underway from 4.30pm.
