Editor's Viewpoint: Well done, girls

Well done to the girls - two swimmers and a table tennis player - who have qualified for the Olympic Games and will join other Northern Ireland competitors in London.

Even in these days of professional sport, the Olympics represent the summit of achievement and athletes from here who make the cut deserve the highest praise. They have put in years of unstinting practice and training to reach the level required, often at great personal and family sacrifice. Just getting to London makes them winners, but they will be striving for even greater glory and we wish every one of them every success.
