Magees reach European quarter-finals

The Donegal siblings Chloe and Sam Magee have reached the quarter-finals of the mixed doubles at the European Badminton Championships in Ukraine.

The Raphoe duo beat Scotland’s Eleanor O’Donnell and Christopher Grimley in straight games in Friday’s last 16 encounter.

The victory means they are now just one win away from a medal in Kiev.

However, they now face the top seeds, Lauren Smith and Marcus Ellis of England, in the last eight.
