Her brother Aidan had it a little less straightforward in his clash with Ukraine's Yevhenii Barabanov.
He progressed following a split decision in the welterweight clash to seal his spot in Tokyo.
An emotional moment for Aidan Walsh as he qualifies for @Tokyo2020! He will be joining his sister, Michaela, who qualified yesterday. #StrongerTogether
