Adam Nolan, who works as a Garda in Bray, qualified for the 2012 Olympics with a magnificent semi-final win over Romania’s Ionut Gheorghe in Trabzon, Turkey on the 20/4/12.
A top two finish was required to book Olympic tickets in the welterweight division.
Bray BC southpaw Nolan, boxing out of the blue corner, did the business with a clinical display of counter-punching this afternoon.
An emotional Nolan, who went into the ring as an Irish international and came out of the squared circle as an Irish Olympian, said that he had realised a lifetime ambition.
“It’s just unbelievable, I can’t believe it, I just can’t believe it. It’s a boyhood dream,” said the Enniscorthy man.
