Mayo Athlete Qualifies For Two Finals At European U20 Championships

Mayo Athlete Qualifies For Two Finals At European U20 Championships
By PJ Browne Updated

Michaela Walsh had a busy morning at the European U20 Athletics Championships in Italy.

First up, at the 8:10am this morning, the 18-year-old from Mayo featured in the shot put qualifying round.

An effort of 15.39m, qualifying her in seventh, would be good enough for a spot in tomorrow evening's final.

Shortly after qualifying for her first final of the Championships, Walsh attempted to make another.

There was little rest and just a few practice attempts in the hammer before she launched a 62.33m effort.

It was her first attempt and good enough to qualify in first for the final which also takes place on Saturday.

A delighted Walsh was interviewed by Athletics Ireland after her double qualification.
