Kellie Harrington has crashed out of the European Elite Women’s Championships today.

The World silver medallist was edged out by Russia’s Aleksandra Ordina on a split-decision.

The Dubliner was viewed as Ireland's main medal hope at the event after Katie Taylor turned professional last month.

After the fight, she tweeted: "Really hurting now so Bad. So bad. Speechless and feeling like a broke woman. But I'll pick myself up and get behind the rest of my team."

There was better news for Ireland's Moira McElligott who beat Croatia’s Sara Beram to advance to the quarter-finals.
