Congratulations Katie Taylor

Katie Taylor won her Fourth World Title earlier today in China, and is now one of the most - if not the most - successful amateur boxers we've ever produced. A bit of "congrats" is therefore in order.

(Theres plenty of places to be smart, slag off the sport etc, so you might be as good as to do that there and not here)

I've a feeling she will be bringing home a gold medal from the Olympics.

Fair play to her.

Taylor is a living Irish legend, one of our smartest sports people ever. The way she reads her opponents is second to none. She deserves every accolade she recieves. Hopefully she can do the business over in London.

Nope. She'll need to win 3 fights to win gold.

A great example for teenage girls.

I'm well aware she'll need to win more than one fight. Shes tipped as one of the favourites, and due to be seeded in the olympic competition.

Anyway, hasn't she also had to win more than one fight in everyother competition she's been in, the 4 world titles, and the 5 europeans amongst others.

She's brilliant! Very proud of her!

She just has to be a flag carrier at the olympics, HAS TO BE, she has been an amazing ambassador for Irish sport!

She's a hot favourite, but not a cert. That's all I'm saying.
