Irish Olympian Scott Evans takes on The42 Christmas Quiz

Ireland’s top sports stars face 10 questions on some of 2016’s biggest moments.


FROM ROBBIE BRADY to Rio de Janeiro, 2016 has been another busy year for Irish sport.

But how well do you remember those big moments and the people who were at the heart of it all?

We tested some of Ireland’s top sports stars with 10 questions in The42’s first-ever Christmas quiz.

Kilkenny hurling legend Jackie Tyrrell is still the man to beat after he scored 8/10, one clear of Kerry’s Colm Cooper.

Today it’s the turn of a man who made Irish sporting history in Brazil this summer — Olympic badminton player Scott Evans.
