Neville and Healy Rise to the Occasion in Belgrade

Ciara Neville (Emerald) and Phil Healy (Bandon) were fast out of the blocks this morning, qualifing for the women’s 60m semi-finals, at the European Indoor Championships, in Belgrade.

17-year-old Neville was first up and the Emerald AC sprinter clocked 7.46 to finish fourth in her 60m heat this morning to advance automatically.

"I'm absolutely delighted,” said Neville afterwards. “I ran that race like a final. I thought really hard about competing here, but I decided to come in case this opportunity never came around again. There's more to come."

Phil Healy was equally delighted with her automatic qualification in the 60m after finishing fourth in her heat in 7.39.

"A big Q, that's what I came out here for, so I have to be happy,” said Healy who ran in the 400m heats yesterday. “After the 400, if I let myself think the legs are heavy, then you're fighting a losing battle. You have to believe you're coming out fresh, then it's going to happen."


Challenging Night for Irish in Belgrade

It was a challenging evening for the Irish at the European Indoor Championships in Belgrade with Ciara Mageean (UCD) limping off the track in the women’s 1500m final and John Travers (Donore Harriers) 11th in the men’s 1500m final in 3:53.11.

Great Britain’s Laura Muir won the women’s 1500m in a championship record of 4:02.39 which also was a British record. Mageean dropped out with 400m to go and was limping heavily citing a sore Achilles.  

Poland’s Marcin Lewandowski won the men’s 1500m in 3:44.82 to follow up on the gold in the 800m he won in Prague in 2015 where Mark English won silver. “Unfortunately I didn’t put in the performance I wanted to put in,” said Travers afterwards on his 11th place finish.
