However this triumph was to be shockingly short lived after an incident allegedly took place in a hotel where the Irish team were staying.

According to the Cathal McMahon of the Irish Independent Nevin was allegedly punched by a Russian coach who was apparently angered by noise that she was making in the hotel.
