Derval wins in Belfast

Derval O’Rourke was thrilled with her 8.18 wining time in the 60m hurdles. After a month of rest due to injury she did her first hurdles session last Tuesday and went into today’s race in a nervous state. Her immediate reaction after the race was ‘I’m so relieved to have that out of the way’. She heads to Doha quietly confident of putting in a medal winning performance.

Ailis McSweeney finished second 60m final is a close fought sprint.
