Tallinn, Estonia

July 16th 2021

Final Entry List - All Countries


A team of 33 athletes has arrived in Tallinn for the European U20 Championships which will take place from July 15th - 18th.

The championships have provided many great moments for Irish athletes in recent years, most notably the three medals secured by Sarah Healy (Silver), Darragh McElhinney (Bronze), and Kate O'Connor (Silver) in 2019.   

This year’s squad will touch down in Estonia buoyed by the success of the Irish U23 team which competed at the venue last weekend and took home a brilliant silver medal secured by Olympic bound David Kenny in the 20k Walk.

Day 2

Nicola Tuthill, who has been in terrific form in recent weeks, will be first of the Irish in action on day 2 in the Women’s Hammer. The Kilbrittan teen threw a new PB of 61.55m at the recent senior national championships to go third on the all-time list.

Ava O'Connor (Tullamore Harriers AC) and Eoin Quinn (Mullingar Harriers AC) will line up in stacked fields in both of their respective 1500m and 800m heats, while Alan Miley (St L O'Toole AC) will also be another of the early starters as he takes his place in the heats of the 400mH from 10.50am.

Team Ireland look to have another strong hand in the Men’s 5000m with Abdel Laadjel (Donore Harriers), Callum Morgan (St. Malachy's AC), and Dean Casey (Ennis Track Club) arriving here on the back of impressive national championship performances. Laadjel and Casey are currently ranked within the top 10 in Europe (U20 5,000m).

Lauren McCourt (Bandon AC) set a new 200m PB of 24.16 at the recent national senior championships and will join Irish 200m record holder Rhasidat Adeleke (Tallaght AC) in the heats of the 200m from 5.20pm. Adeleke set the stunning 22.96 200m Irish record in the Manhattan earlier this year.

Galway’s Olympic bound sprinter Robert McDonnell (Galway City Harriers) will conclude the Irish competing on day two as he looks to book his place in the 200m semi-finals (Heats 5.45pm). McDonnell comes into the championships buoyed by some breath-taking performances of late which included a 20.93 which ranks him 3rd coming into this weekend.
