The Dubliner put on a fine show to outpoint her opponent in each of the four rounds in today's semi-final to guarantee at least a silver medal for Ireland when she takes to the ring in the final on Friday.

But based on this performance, gold will be very much the only goal for Harrington.

Following a somewhat nervy opening, Harrington blitzed Kali with pinpoint accuracy and power to win all four rounds with the three judges s;coring the contest 39-37, 40-34 and 40-36.
