AAI Reporton the Final: from the athletics Ireland website

Women’s 800m

Ciara Everard (UCD AC) placed sixth in the women’s 800m final after attacking the race courageously from the offset. The British athlete Jennifer Meadows brought the field through the 400m point in 59.29 with Everard back in fourth place. Everard was still in fourth place as the athletes reached the bell and was running excellently on her debut at these championships.

Everard lost a bit of momentum on the final lap and finished in sixth place in a time of 2:02.55. It was a superb achievement by Everard to make the final and going forward into the outdoor season, quicker times are certainly on the horizon for the UCD student. The race was won by Nataliya Lupu of the Ukraine in a time of 2:00.26
