Watch: Irish Women's 4x100m Team Set New Irish Junior Record
By PJ Browne Updated

Thursday night's Athletissma meeting in Lausanne rounded off with a women's 4x100m relay in front of a big crowd at the Stade Olympique de la Pontaise.

Running out of lane one was an Irish junior team comprised of Ciara Neville, Molly Scott, Gina Moses and Sharlene Mawdsley.

In a race won by Switzerland with a national record time, the Irish team finished sixth and set a record of their own.

Running 44.31, they smashed the previous Irish junior record of 45.08 set two years ago. The time is also the fifth fastest ever run by an Irish women's 4x100m relay team.
