The Offaly woman was agonisingly close to securing qualification last time out.

Grainne Walsh has made a winning start to her last qualification tournament for this year's Olympic Games.

The Offaly fighter was a unanimous 5-0 winner over Vietnamese boxer Ngoc Mai Hoang.

Walsh needs three more wins in Thailand to win her place at the games, defeat before then and her Olympic dream will be over.

The 66kg fighter returns to the ring next to fight Sun Hyo Hwang from the People's Republic of Korea.
