“The Olympics is one of the biggest sporting events in the world and it is wonderful to have so many athletes from Northern Ireland competing at this level. These are hugely talented sportsmen and sportswomen. After years of dedication and sacrifice, they have reached the pinnacle of their careers and are up there with the best in their field.
“We are incredibly proud of what all our athletes have achieved in securing a place at the Olympics and I send them my best wishes for a successful Games.”

“I wish all our Olympians the very best of luck as they embark on the challenge of a lifetime at the Olympic Games in Tokyo. The Olympics is the ultimate goal for all athletes and it is outstanding to have such a strong representation of local sportspeople at the Games in Japan this year. I’m especially pleased to see so many women competing at this elite level.
