RAHENY SHAMROCKS SPRINTER Orla Comerford added to Ireland’s medal haul at this week’s Para Athletic European Championships with a brilliant bronze in the T13 200m.

The Dubliner came home third in 26.76 seconds, losing out to a new Championship record set by Ukraine’s Leilia Adzhametova while Carolina Duarte claimed silver for Portugal.

The bronze medal comes after yesterday’s triple gold return and also Noelle Lenihan’s success in the F38 discus this morning.

Also out in the sprint events this evening was Paul Keoghan, who clocked a season’s best 25.20 to come fifth in the T37 200m final. Patrick Monahan also placed fifth in the final of the T53 400m.
