Watch: Ireland's Relay Heroes Give Ecstatic Post-Race Interview
By Gavin Cooney Updated

Ireland today won their first-ever relay medal at the World Under-20 Championships today, with the quartet of Molly Scott, Gina Akpe-Moses, Ciara Neville and Patience Jumbo-Gula setting an Irish record time of 43.90 seconds on their way to a silver medal in Finland this afternoon. Neville was a late replacement for Rhasidat Adeleke, who missed out on the final with a hamstring injury.

After the race, they spoke to Cathal Dennehy of Athletics Ireland of their ecstasy.

What is striking is their belief that they would win a medal, which they reacted to by listing off the near-misses they have had up to now.

Enjoy it below.
