European Championships

Athletics Ireland Release - Feidhlim Kelly

Healy hits the Ground Running in Berlin

Phil Healy (Bandon AC) hit the ground running in Berlin, to advance to the semi-finals of the 100m, at the European Athletics Championships, finishing second in 11.44 today, August 6th

Healy was happy with her performance, and came through strongly in heat 3, to finish second, and qualify automatically.

“That’s the box ticked and I’m looking forward to the semi-finals tomorrow,” said Healy.  

Gina Akpe-Moses (Blackrock-Louth) was fourth in heat 1 of the 100m, in 11.63, and just missed out on making the semi-finals, by 0.02 seconds.

“I’m happy with my run and how I performed,” said Akpe-Moses after her first senior international championship. “I wasn’t happy with the time but I was good out of the blocks and ran well.”

Adam McMullen (Crusaders) was unable to advance to the men’s long jump final, recording a best of 7.47m, which left him 13th in Group B, and 25th overall.

“I’m disappointed with that,” said McMullen afterwards. He has been making changes in order to advance to the next level. “My speed has improved, but I couldn’t get it right on the runway today.”

Athlete interviews are available on Athletics Ireland social media channels, and also on RTE, where there is extensive coverage of the championships.
