We took on 3-time Olympian Scott Evans at badminton... and it went as well as you might expect

But Steve O’Rourke did manage to score a point on Evans.

SCOTT EVANS HAS ranked as high as 23 in the world, is a former winner of the Irish Open (reaching the final this year) and, in Rio, became the first Irish man to compete in three different Olympic Games.

Steve O’Rourke is an overweight sportswriter with a Community Games bronze medal for discus who hasn’t picked up a badminton racket since 1994.

So here in The42 we obviously thought it would be a great idea to have the two of them face off.
