Ireland Finish Second In Women's 4x200m At World Relay Finals

Ireland have finished second in the women's 4x200m at the World Relay Finals in Poland this evening, capping off a strong couple of days for the team overall.

The quartet consisting of Aoife Lynch, Kate Doherty, Sarah Quinn, and Sophie Becker ran a time of 1:35:93, smashing the national record in the process.

Following the exploits of our 4x400m mixed team over the last 24 hours, who finished seventh in the final and booked a place at the Olympic Games, this is another big boost for Irish Athletics.

It was a fantastic run from the four athletes involved, finishing less than a second behind Poland in first place.

Unfortunately there are no medals on offer in these games, but this makes their second place finish no less impressive.

Ireland performed brilliantly in the race, pushing the Poles all the way in the quest for first place. While they would come up just short, it was still a brilliant showing from all involved.

Not bad going!
