Steven Donnelly always knew that reaching the Olympic Games would raise his profile to new heights.
But even the Ballymena boxer couldn’t believe the latest show of support from his All Saints Boxing Club team-mates.
Proudly emblazoned on the wall of the Cushendall Road clubrooms is a huge, eye-catching sign illustrating the club’s backing for their man in Rio.
Donnelly, who is putting the finishing touches to his preparations, said: “It’s a proud moment for me seeing this sign being put up and I appreciate it.
“Years of hard word have paid off for me and I will give it 100 per cent in Rio.
“Bring it on and thanks to everyone for their support - let the buzz continue,” added Steven.
