Outside of the boxers I would guess she might be Irelands best hope of a medal

Surely Rob Heffernan is a better shot at a medal. And maybe even Derval, who is ranked higher in her event than Aileen is (had she not got injured she would have cruised into the final in Daegu and finished around 5th).

Outside of the boxers I don't think we have any good medal hopes but here's hoping the track guys and Aileen can surprise us - assuming Aileen qualifies for London which I dont think she has yet (?).
Anyone know if Bryan Keane is likely to get to London?

No mention of Mad Len with his roofless house. He is such a crazy f¥cker he could have the balls to do it. When your training setup makes shoes especially for you, you are in a serious setup. 10th in a champs last year, training with the bronze medalist and Mo Farah and others. He could do anything in London. If he did medal it would be the greatest medal achievement since Delaney. A 1500 medal in London, I'd call my next born Len (or Lena) if that came to pass.

Heard her interview on BBC radio NI, was surprised at how much getting a few smacks to the face affected her.
Would have thought it was a common occurrence to get bashed around a bit in the swim?
Scared me a bit actually.

She put up a blog post that TI linked also.
Apparently cruising near the front of swim, then some girl came and swam over her, grabbed her head and dunked her!
So she got her back
I heard a rumour it was Harry Wiltshire's girlfriend... :pac:
I'll get my coat...

I have some doubts on how well "2nd" was for her today. Yes its a decent result but she was top ranked (seeing as she wore bib 1 and i believe this is based off ranking) going into it so on that anything below 1st was a step back. She already has her Olys spot but yes while her run was good both the swim and bike must have been below target seeing as it wasn't a top class field and she didn't make 1st pack!

Fuppin hell, how did he not think he would get caught?
