Gutsy Magee makes her mark against Korea's best
A TINY Donegal teenager, who pumps herself up beforehand by blasting dance music through her headphones, bowed out of her first Olympics yesterday.
But not before the little Irish pocket-rocket had won over local badminton afficionados, and certainly marked herself out as 'one to watch for London 2012'.
Leaving a tearful Estonian, who was ranked nearly 30 places higher, in her wake in the first round, Chloe Magee (19) lost to Korea's Jaey Youn Jun in badminton's last 32 yesterday in two sets (21-12, 21-14).
But that was no disgrace.
Jun is currently ranked 11th in the world, and should be even higher as she is coming back from knee surgery.
Magee's ranking? 74th!
