Accueita beat Marthamma Sattivada of India 14-8 in the quarter final of the Junior event, guaranteeing her a bronze.
She is now two fights away from taking a gold medal at the inaugural tournament – along with two other Irish boxers.
The Irish champion shared a tight first round with Sattivada in Antalya, but pulled away in the second to open up a three point advantage, an advantage she built on with another five points in the third en route to an historic medal.
Accueita nows joins Michael Walsh on the medals podium following Walsh’s World Youth quarter-final win yesterday.
Round scoring – Accueita was boxing out of the blue corner.
Accueita faces Sweden’s Agnes Alexiusson in her semi-final today.
And the whole of Donegal will be cheering her on.
