London 2012: How team Ireland fared

Judo: Lisa Kearney lost her last-16 bout of the 48kg division to China's Shugen Wu. The fight finished 1-1 but her Chinese opponent produced an Ippon -- a clean throw-- to win in sudden death.



Swimming

Barry Murphy finished eighth in his heat of the 100m breaststroke and was eliminated despite swimming 1:01.57, his second-fastest time ever in the event.

Gymnastics

Kieran Behan scored a disappointing 13.966 in the men's floor qualifying round and didn't progress to the final. Two stumbles on his final two landings damaged his score.

Rowing

Sanita Puspure looked comfortable as she eased home in third place in her heat of the singles schulls to qualify for the quarter-finals in a time of 7:49. Puspure will next be in action in Tuesday's quarter-finals.

Boxing

John Joe Nevin easily beat Dane Dennis Ceylan in the bantamweight round of 32, on a score of 21-6. Nevin will now face Kanat Abutalipov of Kazakhstan in the last 16. Darren O'Neill also progressed to the last 16, with a 15-6 win against Muideen Akanji of Nigeria in the middleweight division.

Cycling

In the road race David McCann placed 55th, Nicolas Roche was 89th and Daniel Martin 90th.

Dressage

The Irish team lie in fifth place as Aoife Clarke finished in 12th place after a formidable Olympic performance on Master Crusoe, recording a penalty score of 48.90. Joseph Murphy ended in 22nd position, on 55.60 penalties with Electric Cruise, and Michael Ryan was in 30th with Ballylynch Adventure, after a score of 60.20.
