Kerryman Jordan Lee Wins Bronze In Euro Para Athletics High Jump

Ireland has won a sixth medal at the European Para Athletics Championships in Berlin.

On Thursday morning, Jordan Lee claimed bronze in the T47 high jump.

The 18-year-old Kerryman - a relative newcomer to the sport - went clear on his first attempt at 1.75m. That was enough to claim the bronze.

He would fail match silver medalist Daniel Perez's effort of 1.78m after three attempts. Alexandre Dipoko-Ewane of France won gold with a championship record effort of 1.89m.

Lee's bronze adds the four golds won by Greta Streimikyte, Orla Barry, Noelle Lenihan and Jason Smyth along with Orla Comerford's bronze.
