European Championships 2016 - Day 3 (am) - Athletics Ireland Report

 Athletics Ireland Release

History for Irish Steeplechase Trio at European Championships 

Athletics Ireland Steeplechase Trio Finn Treacy O Flaherty Amsterdam I copy
It was a great opening session for the Irish on day three of the European Athletics Championships in Amsterdam with Michelle Finn (Leevale), Sara Treacy (Dunboyne) and Kerry O’Flaherty (Newcastle) qualifying for the final of the women’s 3,000m steeplechase.

It was a historic day with all three athletes making the European final. Michelle Finn finished fourth in a season’s best of 9:45.93 in the first heat of the women’s 3,000m steeplechase with the first five to qualify automatically for the final on Sunday. Finn came through strongly and was pleased with her effort. “I ran much better than my earlier races this season and coped better with the number of athletes around the barriers,” said Finn. “I feel remarkably good afterwards so we’ll see what happens in the final.”
Sara Treacy
Sara Treacy and Kerry O’Flaherty were pitted against each other in the second heat and both came through strongly to advance to the final. Treacy took the final automatic qualifying spot in fifth in a new personal best of 9:42.16 while O’Flaherty qualified comfortably in sixth as a non-automatic qualifier with a big season’s best of 9:45.53.

“I knew I had a personal best in me from training,” said Treacy afterwards. “I’m really pleased with that and looking forward to the final.” O’Flaherty was equally pleased: “That’s a big step forward and it’s great to get all three girls into the final.”

Christine McMahon

Christine McMahon (Ballymena & Antrim) was pleased to advance to the semi-finals of the women’s 400m hurdles semi-finals after finishing fourth in heat four in 57.73. “I made one or two mistakes towards the end but the point is to get through and I did that,” she said afterwards.

Ben Reynolds
Ben Reynolds (North Down) got Irish action underway with a 7th place finish in the first heat of the men’s 110m hurdles in a season’s best of 13.87.  The race took place during torrential rain

European Championships - Day 2 (am) - Athletics Ireland Report

Lawler and Foster Sprint to European Semis

Amy Foster

Marcus Lawler (St Laurence O’Toole) and Amy Foster (City of Lisburn) continued the Irish qualification trail with excellent performances in their respective 200m and 100m qualifying heats on day 2 of the European Athletics Championships (July 7).

Lawler finished fifth in heat 1 of the men’s 200m in 21.06 (-1.1) and was delighted to qualify for the semi-finals with a fastest non-automatic qualifier spot.

Lawler had a brief layoff before the championships due to a niggle but was back in form and ran a good bend to put himself in position to advance.

“I’m into bonus territory now,” said the Carlow sprinter. “The atmosphere was brilliant and that’s what motivates me. I’m here to learn and keep progressing.

Foster was equally pleased with her third place finish in the women’s 100m in 11.57 which qualified her automatically for the semi-finals. “I got the job done,” said Foster contentedly afterwards. “I would expect of myself to get through to the semis but now it’s a different ball game getting into a European final. I hoped to run faster but maybe the semi-final will be the time.”

Unfortunately Karl Griffin (UCD) and Declan Murray (Clonliffe Harriers) didn’t advance from their respective 800m heats. Griffin finished 8th in heat 3 with a season’s best of 1:49.37 while Declan Murray finished 6th in heat 4 with 1:50.10 in what were tactical battles throughout.

Murray rued not getting to the front after 200m to aid his chances of a fastest non-automatic qualifying spot. “My plan was to assess at the 200m mark whether to push on,” said Murray. “I hesitated slightly as we all came on top of each other so I just raced it tactically. I was in the right position but it’s always going to be difficult leaving it to a sprint.”

Tori Pena (Finn Valley) was the first Irish athlete in action in the qualifying of the women’s pole vault where she just missed out on countback to qualify for the final. She finished 7th in group A and 15th overall with a best clearance of 4.35m.

High Performance Director Kevin Ankrom was pleased with the morning. “It’s important that the athletes get out there and experience this level of competition. It was good to see Marcus Lawler and Amy Foster advance.”

This afternoon Thomas Barr (Ferrybank) competes in the 400m hurdles semi-final at 15:15, Brian Gregan (Clonliffe Harriers) and Sinead Denny (DSD) compete in their respective 400m semi-finals at 15:45 and 16:35 while Eoin Everard (Kilkenny City Harriers) goes in the heats of the men’s 1500m at 17:20.

Olive also had another flag, which was unclear initially, but with a bit of help from Sebastian Coe, who helped sort it out, it emerged as the Loughrea AC flag - flag of Olive's club.

Also making a cameo appearance, early in the proceedings, was West Waterford AC's James Veale.

I truly have it all now' - Olive Loughnane delight with gold medal

Loughnane was upgraded to gold after Olga Kaninska's competition results were annulled

Olive Loughnane admitted it felt both “surreal" and "emotional" to receive a gold medal for her 2009 World Championship performance seven years after her heroics in Berlin.

The now retired athlete was upgraded from her silver medal at the 20km race walk after Russian Olga Kaninska’s competition results were annulled by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) earlier this year.

Loughnane produced a season’s best time of 1:28:58 to chase home Kaniskina at the Berlin championships and saw off the challenge of Chinese walker Liu Hong for the battle for silver.

Kaninska’s case saw the Irish woman awarded her gold medal in Amsterdam during the ongoing European Championships.

A lot has changed for 40-year-old in the intervening years, but says she got goosebumps when she arrived at the Amsterdam Olympic Stadium to receive her gold earlier today.

“It’s all a bit surreal now. I’m retired three years,” she told RTÉ Sport.

“I have two small children at home. My daughter who was three then is 10 now. It’s a bit of a different world.”

The athlete still has fond memories of that glorious day in Germany and is happy that here perseverance on the day has paid off with the race win.

“I went there and I wanted to win a medal. It’s still so clear even though it was seven years ago,” she said.

“From about 13km in I was in a medal position. I was over and back with the Chinese girl (Liu Hong) for silver and bronze and the Russian girl (Kaniskina) had gone clear.

“I did eventually win that battle and obviously that has been so crucial because instead of going from bronze to silver, I’m going from silver to gold.”

The highs of Berlin contrasted sharply with her disappointment of the London Olympics three years later.

The Cork-born athlete said it was an “emotionally draining” experience and evidence of her high standards can be found in her recollection of the day.

“I went out there to win a medal and I got absolutely hammered,” she says, reflecting on her 13th place finish.

The annulment of Kaninska’s results is yet another example of the drugs controversy engulfing Russian athletics, but Loughnane does not harbour any bitterness to the athletes themselves, and indeed is thankful that Irish athletics takes a much harder line on doping.

“I didn’t ever dwell on the ‘what might have beens’ then and I’m not dwelling on them now,” she added.

“A gold medal is the icing on the cake, I truly feel like I have it all now"

“In a sense, those girls are victims because the system is such that you can’t compete without being part of the system, and that system involves drugs.

“As an athlete who comes from a country where far from being encouraged, you’d be hunted down if you were dirty, I’m very proud to be from a country like that.

“I wonder what those girls go through, what it’s going to be like for them.”

The day however belongs to Loughnane and is a recognition of the outstanding achievements from one of our most talented athletes

“A gold medal is the icing on the cake, I truly feel like I have it all now.”

The presentation is scheduled to take place around 20:00, local time (19:00, Irish time)and will be made by Sebastian Coe, President of the IAAF.  Also being presented with Gold is Norway's Trond Nymark, 50km Racewalk Champion, also from 2009.

Olive Loughnane's IAAF Profile

Olive Loughnane Honours

 

Olive is being presented with the Gold medal following the banning of Russian Olga Kaniskina for irregularities in her biological passport.  Originally banned by the IAAF, Kaniskina, along with ARAF, the Russian Federation,  appealed the decision to C.A.S., the Court of Arbitration in Sport, however this appeal was rejected by CAS

"Olga Kaniskina

All competitive results obtained by Ms Olga Kaniskina from 15 August 2009 to 15 October 2012 are disqualified."

Media Coverage

It is unclear whether RTE2 will be covering the presentation Live.  While the TV station will be covering much of the Championships on Wednesday, from 10:00am to 18:50pm, when it changes sports, to cover the European Soccer Championships Semi-Final, the presentation is due to take place pretty much around the time of the changeover.

If the presentation is not covered live on RTE, there are plenty of other opportunities to see it live, as per European Athletics Release below

European Athletics is pleased to announce strong broadcast intentions have been received for the Amsterdam 2016 European Athletics Championships.

With just two days to go, broadcasters in at least 32 European countries have already submitted their intentions for the 23rd edition of the championships. In addition, pan-European channel Eurosport plans to show the majority of the championships live across its 54 territories.

According to the latest figures received by European Athletics, there will be more than 900 hours of television coverage over the five days of the championships, including more than 800 hours of live coverage.

"The expected television coverage confirms the value broadcasters attach to a European Athletics Championships held during the Olympic year," said European Athletics President Svein Arne Hansen.

"The number of hours are higher than we expected considering the more compact five-day format instead of six and with no race walks or marathon (half marathon has been added) in the programme."

European Athletics will also stream the event live on www.european-athletics.org homepage with English-language commentary, meaning athletics fans around the world will be able to watch the championships live in their entirety. The live streaming platform is provided in partnership with European Athletics' principal sponsor SPAR.

With the streaming of the individual feeds on http://www.eurovisionsports.tv/ platform, fans will also be able to follow the live streaming of specific events in their entirety.

As usual, Live Results will be available at www.european-athletics.org.

Mageean Mixes with Europe's Best to Make 1500m Final

Athletics Ireland Report

Ciara Mageean (UCD) continued the excellent form of the Irish women at the European Athletics Championships in Amsterdam with an impressive performance to qualify for the women’s 1500m final.

The UCD athlete, coached by Jerry Kiernan, finished third in heat 1 of the women’s 1500m in 4:13.61. The championship favourites were ahead of her – Sifan Hassan (Netherlands) won in 4:13.45 with Poland’s Angelika Cichoka second in 4:13.47.

“I was really happy with my physicality,” said Mageean afterwards. “It’s my first major championships for a few years so it’s good to get out and use the elbows. I love to run for Ireland and wear the green, white and gold.”

Mageean will run the final at 16:45 Irish time live on RTE 2 on Sunday and she’s relishing the prospect. “This is what you run for,” she said. “Hassan and Cichoka are the favourites but I’ll be going in there with a number of others with a chance. It’s all well and good saying it, it’s another doing it.”

Video - Mageean Finishing

 Marcus Lawler (St Laurence O’Toole) ran an aggressive bend in lane 1 of the first men’s 200m semi-final but didn’t have enough to advance finishing 7th in 21.33. “That wasn’t good enough,” said Lawler afterwards. “I ran a hard bend to get in the mix but it wasn’t enough. I want to be making finals and hopefully in the coming years I will be.”

Amy Foster (City of Lisburn) rounded out Irish action on Day 3 finishing 7th in the third 100m semi-final in 11.62.

The Irish had a great morning session with Michelle Finn (Leevale), Sara Treacy (Dunboyne) and Kerry O’Flaherty (Newcastle) all advancing to the women’s 3,000m steeplechase final while Christine McMahon (Ballymena & Antrim) qualified for the women’s 400m hurdles semi-final.

European Championships - Day 2 (pm) - Athletics Ireland Report

Battling Barr misses out on European final

Thomas Barr

A season’s best performance wasn’t quite enough for Thomas Barr (Ferrybank) to make the final of the men’s 400m hurdles at the European Athletics Championships in Amsterdam (July 7).

Barr ran 50.09 to finish fifth in the third semi-final and there were plenty of positives for the Waterford man who just returned to full training a number of weeks ago.

“I’ll take a lot of positives from this,” said Barr. “It was good to get into championship mode which you don’t experience anywhere else. The Olympics will be no different just on a bigger stage.”

Brian Gregan (Clonliffe Harriers) was next on track in the first semi-final of the men’s 400m where he put in a brave performance to finish seventh from lane one in 46.37 seconds.

“It was my fastest ever out of lane 1 so it was okay,” said Gregan. “Obviously I would to have liked to have gone faster but I’m coming around and my focus is fully on the relay now.”

Brian Gregan

Sinead Denny (DSD) produced a similarly gutsy performance from lane 1 in the semi-finals of the women’s 400m. Denny clocked 53.27 seconds to finish 8th in the third semi-final – just one hundredth of a second outside her personal best.

“I would have liked to have gone a little bit faster but I’ve got to be pleased with my first major championships,” said Denny afterwards. “My goal was to make it to the semi-final and run a pb. I was just outside that but it’s made me hungry for more.”

Sinead Denny

Eoin Everard (Kilkenny City Harriers) rounded out the Irish action for the evening session of day 2 of the European Athletics Championships. The Kilkenny man finished 11th in the first heat of the men’s 1500m in 3:45.46, having been ill with stomach trouble in the past few days.   

Irish in Action Tomorrow

Ben Reynolds (North Down) gets Irish action underway tomorrow at 11:55 Irish time in the men’s 110m hurdles heats. Sara Treacy (Dunboyne), Kerry O’Flaherty (Newcastle) and Michelle Finn (Leevale) compete in the women’s 3,000m steeplechase at 12:30 with Christine McMahon (Ballymena & Antrim) in the heats of the 400m hurdles at 13:15. In the evening Ciara Mageean (UCD) competes in the women’s 1500m heats at 17:15  with Marcus Lawler (SLOT) in the men’s 200m semi-final at 17:50 and Amy Foster (City of Lisburn) at 18:15 in the semi-finals of the women’s 100m.

Fionnuala a fighting fourth as Loughnane finally gets Gold

Morning Session

Fionnuala a fighting fourth as Loughnane finally gets gold

Fionnuala McCormack (Kilcoole) finished a frustrating fourth after a brave run in the women’s 10,000m in 31:30.74 while Olive Loughnane finally got her hands on her world championships gold medal.

It was nearly a double celebration as McCormack put in a battling performance in the women’s 10,000m final to finish fourth to Turkey’s Yasemin Can formerly of Kenya in 31:12.86. It was just outside McCormack’s personal best of 31:29.22 set in 2012.

“It’s more than frustrating finishing fourth but I’m getting back to my best,” said McCormack. Tara Jameson (Sli Cualann) finished 14th in 33:19.85.

For Olive Loughnane the seven year wait was finally over as she was retrospectively rewarded the gold medal for the 20km race walk in Berlin in 2009. “There’s value in sentiment and it was great to share the moment with all the Irish fans here,” said an emotional Loughnane.    

Thomas Barr (Ferrybank) continued his comeback to full fitness with an excellent win in the first heat of the 400m Hurdles with a 50.17 second clocking. “Everything is a bonus now,” said Barr. “I’m building back to fitness and it was important to get through the first round.  

Paul Byrne (St Abban’s) finished fourth in heat 2 of the men’s 400m hurdles in 53.12.

Tomas Cotter (Dunleer) felt flat from the off in heat 1 of the men’s 3,000m steeplechase where he finished 12th in heat 1 in 9:08.82.

Siofra Cleirigh Buttner (DSD) just missed out on a place in the women’s semi-finals finishing fifth in her heat in 2:04.97.

High Performance director Kevin Ankrom reflected on a positive first day of the championships for the Irish:

“It was a great performance by Fionnuala placing fourth and just missing out on a medal. I know she’ll be gutted but her time of 31:30.74 is a great time and bodes well for her marathon preparations for Rio.

“Thomas Barr continued to show signs of improvement coming back from injury and advancing to the semi-finals with a season’s best of 50.17. Siofra narrowly missed out on the semis but she’s had a long season. This meet is exactly what I want our up-and-coming athletes to experience. It definitely makes them hungrier for more knowing they can compete with the best.”

Tomorrow’s action kicks off at 08:35 (Irish time) with Tori Pena (Finn Valle) in the pole vault. Marcus Lawler (SLOT) competes in the men’s 200m at 9:50. At 10:35 Declan Murray (Clonliffe Harriers) and Karl Griffin (UCD) compete in the heats of the men’s 800m. Amy Foster (City of Lisburn) rounds out the morning session of day 2 in the women’s 100m heats at 11:15.

In the afternoon Thomas Barr competes in the semi-finals of the men’s 400m hurdles followed by Brian Gregan (Clonliffe Harriers) in the semi-finals of the men’s 400m at 15:45. Sinead Denny (DSD) takes to the track for the women’s 400m semis at 16:35. Eoin Everard (Kilkenny City Harriers) round out the Irish action in the heats of the men’s 1500m at 17:20.
