IRELAND’S BRIGHTEST GOLD medal hope Katie Taylor takes on Mavzuna Chorieva this afternoon in an Olympic semi-final.
But it looks like some of the British media will be slotting the Bray woman’s first Games medal under the Team GB column on the medal table whether it’s bronze, silver or gold, ultimately.
“Can anyone defeat Britain’s Katie Taylor,” the newspaper asks this morning, “the most technically proficient attacking boxer in the world?”
They’ve got over 20 golds already… can’t they leave us have Katie?
Update: The Telegraph have tweeted an apology for the mistake and after Taylor’s win in her Olympic semi-final, the newspaper’s editor added his best wishes. “Congratulations to Katie Taylor, from…ahem… Ireland…on reaching the boxing final,” Tony Gallagher wrote.
