Magee: A Good Games

Badminton player Chloe Magee on losing her second round match:
" This girl is one of the best in the game and all I wanted to do was go out there and play my best badminton and I did that in parts but I just wasn’'t consistent enough.
"I played a good game but just not long enough. I wouldn’'t say I played better than the first round. I'’d say I played better in patches but I gave her a few easy points and you just can’'t do that against Asian players because they are just too good.
"I'’m happy I made her play hard. Playing against this sort of player is an experience in itself, she'’s not 11th in the world for no reason.”"
On her performance overall:
“"I'’m 19 years old and I'’ve had a really good Olympics here. I wasn'’t expected to win the first game against someone ranked forty places above me so that will give me a lot of confidence.”"
Magee will now move her base from Sweden to Denmark, where she will work with coach Jim Laugerson within an Irish squad system. She also aims to spend more time in Dublin, training with Karen Bing for the women's doubles, with London 2012 their ultimate aim.
