Yesterday's unexpected win for the Irish men's U-23 team was also a victory for Ireland economically, as they were presented with medals that were provided by a Galway-based sports management company called SAVVY Sports.
It, too, had defied expectations and the current economic pessimism by winning the tender to supply all the medals for the big athletics event, and Savvy Sports CEO Pierce O'Callaghan, a former international athlete himself, said: "We are particularly thrilled now that some of these medals are coming back to Ireland. Well done to the boys!"
