Kellie Harrington has warmed up for her maiden Olympic Games by securing gold in the European qualifying tournament.

The Dubliner has been awarded a split-decision victory over Britain's Caroline Dubois in their lightweight final in Paris with four of five judges calling the fight in her favour.

It'll also boost the 2018 world champion's seeding for the Games in Tokyo. Harrington has also previously medalled at the 2016 World Championships, two European Championships and the European Games.
