Chloe Magee qualified for the London Olympics in the ladies singles badminton via the BWF Olympic Games Qualification list.

The Irish shuttler, ranked 55 in the world, was 26 on the list from 46 players qualified in the ladies singles.

Magee was not quite as successful in the mixed doubles though with brother Sam Magee.

Despite some great results this season the pair, ranked 40 in the world, have been piped down to third reserve on the Olympic list in spot 19 on the final list.

Magee hails from Raphoe, Co Donegal, and lives full time in Denmark.

First in Olympic action on 28 July in the preliminary round. Start time is 8.30am.
