Team GB at Baku 2015: Day 10 Preview

22 June 2015 / 04:13

Nicola Adams is back in action on day 10 of the European Games as she looks to book a place in the women’s flyweight semi-finals.

Olympic Champion Adams faces Bulgaria’s Petrova Stoyka at 08:45 BST today and is in relaxed mood ahead of her charge for European Games glory.

“I never see it as pressure, everyone thinks I will win gold and that's what gives me the motivation and the will power," said the 32-year-old.

“I think it would be the opposite if people thought I wasn't going to win gold, it might make me doubt myself.

“But everyone thinks I am going to win gold and that makes me think I can do it and I want to go and get it.”

Also in action in the ring will be Joe Joyce and Qais Ashfaq as they take on their quarter-final opponents.

Superheavyweight Joyce faces Lithuania’s Mantas Valavicius while bantamweight Ashfaq is set to fight Germany’s Omar El-Hag.

Elsewhere, Team GB’s last remaining archer Kieran Slater will be shooting early as he takes on Turkey’s Yagiz Yilmaz in the men’s last 32 from 05:30 BST with the medals to be decided today.
