Daina, the de­fend­ing cham­pion at the com­pe­ti­tion, had ear­lier beaten French boxer Ben­nama Rim in the quar­ter-fi­nals.

‘Wasn’t to be for our champ to­day in the semi-fi­nals of the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships,’ said a spokesper­son for En­niskerry Box­ing Club. ‘Daina will take home a bronze medal. We are so proud of you. On­wards and up­wards, Daina’.
