Ireland seventh at halfway in Euro Teams

Ireland lie seventh after the middle day of the European Athletics Team Championships in the northern Finnish city of Vaasa, with Brian Gregan scoring the only Irish victory of day two, alongside eleven top-six finishes.

The Irish team are well adrift though of the three promotion places for the 2019 Super League, but are under no risk of relegation to the third flight.

Gregan was immense in winning the men’s 400 metres, his victory never in any conceivable doubt.

Having won yesterday’s heat in 46.24 seconds, the Dubliner romped to glory today in 45.83, well clear of the rest – benefitting from the new format introduced to this year’s Team Championships whereby the sprint events have qualifiers run off on the Friday to shorten the weekend sessions.
