The previous record of 10 Nationals wins as a pair came from Yvonne Kelly & Mary Bryan in 1972. The 2020 Irish Nationals witnessed Sam & Chloe Magee win their record setting 12th Irish Nationals title in the Mixed Doubles. Sam & Chloe Magee have also equalled Yvonne Kelly's 12 National wins in a single event also set in 1972.
The pair were dominant throughout the competition and capped off an excellent day with a straight game victory over Rachael Darragh & Paul Reynolds 21-11,21-10. When asked about the record Chloe Magee had the following to say in her post match interview. "This is probably my last nationals so it is really nice to have that record but I am sure in the future it will be beaten." Full interview with Sam & Chloe Magee will be available later this week.
