Aoife O'Rourke from Castlerea is guaranteed to win at least a silver medal after her middleweight semi-final against Russian opponent Anastasia Shamonova at the European Women's Elite Championships in Madrid. 

The Roscommon native outclassed Shamonova, the current World and Olympic Youth champion, winning on a split decision with one of the five judges awarding the fight to the Russian.

O'Rourke now progresses to this evening's final against Poland's Elzebieta Wojcik.
