Ireland’s Chloe Magee is through to the singles final at the Russia White Nights Pre Olympic Badminton tournament in Gatchina, Russia.

Playing Monika Fasungova of Slovakia in the quarter-final, Magee started well, winning the first set, but in the second was unable to close out the match, narrowly losing 22-20.

With the Slovakian starting to tire, Magee dominated the third set, winning 21-6.

After a few hours break Magee faced Romina Gabdullina of Russia in the semi-finals.

Again, Magee won the opener, then let the second set slip before closing out the match in the third.

She now plays fourth seed Kamila Augustyn of Poland in Sunday’s final.

Scott Evans' campaign ended when he lost in straight sets to Ville Lang of Finland in the men's singles quarter-final.
