IRISH MEDAL PROSPECTS IN TOKYO
All final times are Irish, should, if or when the Irish finalists progress that far.

Saturday, July 24th

Jack Woolley – taekwondo 58kg final* (11am)

Still only 22, and already making Irish Olympic history, Woolley also got the draw he expected, but faces a tricky last eight against an Iranian opponent. Unlike boxing, there will also be a fight-off for bronze and fourth.

Wednesday, July 28th

Philip Doyle and Ronan Byrne – men’s doubles sculls rowing final* (12.30am)

Silver medal winners at the 2019 World Championships, and if anything the year out during Covid-19 (allowing Philip Doyle to return to his medical career) has only deepened their desire and ability to taste Olympic success.

Ireland men’s rugby Sevens Team – Finals* (3am)

They upstaged a lot of bigger teams in the Olympic repechage tournament in Monaco last month, including hosts and favourites France, to nail the last qualifying spot, their competitiveness now freshly cut for some further upset, perhaps.

Thursday, July 29th

Paul O’Donovan and Fintan McCarthy – lightweight men’s doubles sculls rowing final* (12.30am)

Paul is already one of the most decorated medal winners in Irish sport – at World, European and Olympic level – and in the company of young Fintan McCarthy Olympic gold now beckons.

Friday, July 30th

Sanita Puspure – women’s singles sculls rowing final* (12.45am)

At age 39 she continues to leave the younger rowers in her wake, her experience and desire for gold now perhaps her greatest asset.

Sunday, August 1st

Rhys McClenaghan – men’s pommel final* (9am)

He’s been talking a big performance well in advance of Tokyo, working on a new routine to help demonstrate just how good he is, and if he pulls it off he’ll be hard to top.

Sam Watson, Sarah Ennis and Cathal Daniels – eventing showjumping team and individual equestrian (9am)

With Cathal Daniels winning medals at practically every grade and every stage he’s so far competed on, the Olympics may be the platform to prove just how good he and his team mates are.

Annalise Murphy – laser radial sailing medal race (4am)

Silver in Rio five years ago, and even if a little less certainty around her form this time, she’s been here, done that.

Rory McIlroy – men’s individual strokeplay golf fourth round (11.30pm – Saturday night start)

God knows what Rory McIlroy will actually show up, but he can’t dismissed as a medal prospect.

Tuesday, August 3rd

Michaela Walsh – women’s featherweight boxing final* (3am)

One of only two Irish boxers seeded coming into Tokyo. With a bye through the first round, this could be first of two success stories for Irish boxing in Tokyo

Wednesday, August 4th

Bertram Allen, Cian O’Connor and Darragh Kenny – jumping individual equestrian final* (11am)

It may be nine years now since Cian O’Connor pulled off his magnificent individual show jumping bronze in London 2021, and still he’s lost none of his desire and appetite to compete on the Olympic stage. This can only spill over onto his team mates too.

Saturday, August 7th

Bertram Allen, Cian O’Connor and Darragh Kenny – jumping team equestrian final* (11am)

Sunday, August 8th

Kellie Harrington – women’s lightweight boxing final* (6am)

The 2018 World champion didn’t fight for over a year going into the European Olympic qualifiers, only to show once again that her perfect combination of talent and hard work is often hard to stop.

Don’t know much about Pommel Horse but sounds like he got a good score and should make top 8. Commentary is quite whimsical.

Other gold contenders O’Donovan and McCarthy comfortable in their double skulls heat. George Hamilton fairly into the old rowing, quickly dismissing the Uruguay’s for racing into a early lead, George correctly predicting it would be their only moment of glory.

1 up at half time in women’s hockey against SA.

Up 2-0 end of third qtr.

Great win on Olympic debut for women’s hockey. Seemed to play within themselves. Sexist I know but some fine looking women on both teams.

I see Annalise Murphy has seriously undermined her chances of getting a medal in the sailing by finishing 35th and 12th in the opening 2 races of her event. In London she won the opening 2 races and finished 4th in the end.

Irish in Action Day 4
Great performance by McSharry to make final, but up against it to put it mildly, as she was 8th fastest.
Rugby 7s need a win to have outside chance of progressing, having lost 1st 2 matches
Apart from Walker (who still came out worse for wear), Boxers struggling up to now. Hopefully Walsh can change that.

Swimming

2:07 Men's 4x200m free relay, heat 2 - Shane Ryan, Brendan Hyland, Finn McGeever, Jack McMillan

3:17 Women's 100m breaststroke final - Mona McSharry

11:53 Men's 200m breaststroke, heat 5 - Darragh Greene

12:36 Men's 800m freestyle, heat 3 - Daniel Wilfen

Boxing

3:30 Men's 69kg Welterweight, round of 16 - Aidan Walsh vs Albert Ayissi Mengue (Cameroon)

Rugby Sevens

3:00 Pool Phase, Pool C - Ireland vs Kenya

9:30-11:30 Quarter finals (if qualified)

Triathlon

22:30 (Monday) - 00:30 Women's final - Carolyn Hayes

Sailing

4:00-10:00 Laser Radial, races 5 & 6 - Annalise Murphy

6:45-9:10 49er, races 1-3 - Robert Dickson & Sean Waddilove
