Castlerea’s Aoife O’Rouke has won gold at the European Elite Middleweight Championships in Madrid.
Aoife was crowned European champion in Madrid as she defeated Poland’s Elzebieta Wojcik in the 75kg final.
O’Rourke came through a scrappy affair against a tough Polish opponent to win on points by a unanimous 5:0 decision. O’Rourke gave a composed, mature, and clinical performance. She’s the first Irish woman since Katie Taylor to win gold at these championships. Well done Aoife!
