Scott Evans IRL

While the wait has been agonising the dream has finally come through for 3 more European shuttlers as they were today confirmed of their places at the London Olympics.

The heartbreak of missing out first time around was today completely forgotton as Irelands Scott Evans and Czech Number 1

Petr Koukal were confirmed  as particpants in London this summer.

Evans had by his own admission a stinker of a year in qualification and Koukal did not fare much better but both guys battled all the way through qualification and now can join the elite band of athletes who have particiated at two Olympic games. This is has been a hard fight for these guys and they really deserve this opportunity on sports greatest stage.

“Without doubt this has been one of the happiest days of my life.” commented Koukal on his Facebook page.

Joining the boys will also be Belgiums Lianne Tan as she was also confirmed by her Olympic committee which will mean both Lianne and brother Yuhan will travel to London.

Well done to all!!
