Louise Shanahan is in Bydgoszcz, Poland this week with this Irish team competing at the World U20 T&F Championships. On Tuesday, the first day of the championships, the first round of the women’s 800m took place. Louise went in the last of the 5 heats and produced an excellent performance, using her customary last 100m kick to comfortably qualify for Wednesday’s semi-finals.
Louise went in the first of the semis, where she finished a very respectable 6th in a season’s best of 2:08.43. It is a great achievement by Louise to get to the semi-finals on the world stage.
