Thomas Barr ran a Season's Best, and his second fastest time ever, 48.26 sec, to finish fourth in Heat 1 today. Thomas clipped one of the hurdles, and it likely made all the difference. With only the first two from each Heat qualifying automatically, along with the next two fastest overall, it was a waiting game for thomas, to see if, hopefully, none of the other non-automatics ran faster tham him.  However, European U23 Champion, Sibilio (Italy) ran a 47.93 PB to eliminte Thomas.  The luck of the Heat draw didn't favour Thomas, as his time of 48.26 equalled the winning time in Heat 3.  He ran the 7th fastest time, but didn't make the Final 8

Update - 3pm

Athletics Ireland has made two appeals, on grounds of Lane infringement and another on the basis of another athlete dragging his trailing leg around the hurdle, rather than over it. If either, or both appeals are successful, then Thomas will be in the Final. A decision is expected later today

Update - 3.55pm

RTE just reported that the appeal has been unsuccessful
