With Mark English pulling out due to a hamstring injury, and with Ben Reynolds missing out on qualifying by one-hundredth-of-a-second, only one Irish athlete has made it to the World Indoor Athletics Championships in Portland.
Rose-Anne Galligan of Newbridge AC competes in the women’s 1500m after qualifying via the AIT Indoor Grand Prix in Athlone.
The first three in each heat plus the three fastest losers will compete in the final.
Galligan is the sixth-fastest in the field this season.
Her race is underway at 8:35pm Irish time and will be live on Eurosport and BBC Red Button.
