Katie Taylor's final Olympic preparations

The Olympic countdown continues with just 11 days to go before the Oopening Ceremony in London.

We're not expecting too many medals in Ireland, but boxer Katie Taylor is packing a lot of hope into her suitcases. She's battening down the hatches and getting rid of annoyances like pesky journos, click on the poster below to go Newstalk's website for her final pre-Olympics interview.

Best quote: "The wildcards, they gave them out the right girls I think. I'm delighted for those girls because I want to be boxing the best in the competition."

When you get there - Katie Taylor's last interview before the Olympic Games - turn the volume RIGHT UP as Taylor is very softy-spoken.

@Lisa - so many fights to watch. You'll be torn when she takes on Queen Underwood

Looking backwards now, I very much wish Queen had been able to fight Taylor, as I think it might make for a better match than the Gold medal opponent she currently has in Sofya Ochigava. Hope I'm wrong; we could still see a great fight.

@Lisa - ah, I think we can agree now that Ochigava was brilliant, very interesting fight, no brawling just lots of tactics, Ochigava had a great second round, we were so Tense in Dublin! What a week of fights
