London Update: July 31

Jul 31, 2012, 6:17 PM EST


Another busy day in London for the Irish (…or should we say LoNDon?).

Three former Irish women’s soccer players earned spots in Friday’s quarterfinals as Canada and the United States advanced. Read more about Melissa Tancredi (’04), Candace Chapman (’05) and Shannon Boxx (’99) in today’s update on our soccer blog, Irish United.

Junior Natalie Achonwa returns to the court tomorrow when Canada meets France in Group B play. Better wake up early if you’re hoping to catch this one, as it starts at 4:00 am ET. Watch it live on the NBC Olympic Basketball Channel before you head off to work.

Finally, two-time defending gold medalist Mariel Zagunis will return to the piste when the women’s individual sabre preliminary rounds begin at 8:10 am ET on MSNBC.
